Growing up in New Brunswick, I have long been mindful of the love and pride that many feel for Fundy National Park, but until recently I had never been aware of how this connection came to be. Stemming from this curiosity, I grew interested in the art historical ties that Fundy holds through its enduring connection to artists and cultural institutions. Interestingly, Fundy National Park and the surrounding community have long been a cultural hub for artists. Beginning with the opening of the park in 1950, there have been courses for various forms of craft, workshops, cultural events, and artist residencies taking place within the park. The park now hosts a wide array of guests, from Mount Allison University students, to beloved bands and musicians.
