We here at the Diefenbunker could not be more excited to welcome Ottawa artist Marc Adornato underground for his newest exhibition, Ruined Landscapes which opens with a special event on April 5, 2018. Come check out Marc’s exploration of modern Canadian landscapes as he ‘hijacks’ vintage, mass-produced works of art with disasters taken from Canadian headlines. One of the pieces featured in the exhibition even originated from our very own Bunker!
There are still a few tickets available for the April 5, 2018 opening Vernissage available (Click here for tickets)! This is a free event so to avoid disappointment book your tickets and shuttle today! Can’t make the Vernissage-You’re in luck because the exhibit runs to July 15, 2018 but will be subject to museum admission fees.
Events like this wouldn’t be possible without a little help from our friends. The Diefenbunker would like to thank the Ruined Landscapes Vernissage sponsors: The Hintonburg Public House, Matt Love-Royal Lepage Team Reality, Nick Bachusky- Mortgage Agent, Mint Hair Studio, Maker House Co., Brew Donkey, Shitty Shades and ASAP pm.
