In 1963, the Universite de Moncton opened in New Brunswick, Canada. The university's visual art program ushered in a contemporary art movement in the region of Acadia. This online exhibit by the Virtual Museum of Canada is dedicated to twenty prominent Arcadian contemporary artists, including printmakers, sculptors, photographers, and painters. For each featured artist, visitors can read a short biography and listen to a series of short video interviews. A sample question is, "Does your everyday environment stimulate your creativity? In what way?" In addition, visitors can view photographs of work by each artist, accompanied by information about each work. This website offers a glimpse into the Acadian art scene and a way to learn about artistic processes of many fascinating contemporary artists.
