Art & Wine
Wednesday, July 24, 2019
Art and wine, the perfect pairing! Tune into your creative side when we visit McMichael. The story of the McMichael Canadian Art Collection began in 1952, when Robert and Signe McMichael purchased ten acres of land in Kleinburg, Ontario. Their home was built on the land and resembled the Northern Canadian landscape which they loved. The McMichaels began to collect works of art by Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven, artists who drew inspiration from the natural landscape. In 1965, the McMichaels donated their collection, their home and their land to the province of Ontario. In July of 1966, the "McMichael Conservation Collection of Art" officially opened. Over the years, the collection has continued to grow and it is now comprised of more than 6,500 pieces of art. We will enjoy an included lunch at the McMichael Cafe and later visit the Magnotta Winery for a tour and tasting.
