Confederation Centre of the Arts

Description

The Confederation Centre of the Arts is a national arts centre featuring fine art, museum artifacts, theatre, and music. Built in 1964 as Canada's National Memorial to the Fathers of Confederation, the center seeks to inspire Canadians to celebrate the origins and evolution of Canada as a nation. The center houses the largest art gallery east of Montreal, with year-round programs celebrating Canadian culture. The gallery's permanent collection contains over 15,000 contemporary and historic Canadian works, such as the portraiture of Robert Harris and the artists of the Confederation Murals. The Charlottetown Festival produces repertory theatre here from June through October, including the annual Anne of Green Gables: The Musical, first produced in 1965. Many significant Lucy Maud Montgomery artifacts are also found here including her original manuscript of Anne of Green Gables.
