Art Matters

leave a comment »

Marci Ien (from Canada AM) was the MC at the Governor General’s Art Matters event in the City Hall rotunda on Monday March 2nd.

Mr. Lafond spoke in a mix of French and English without translating back and forth. I liked how it made me focus on understanding the French parts. I've always thought it was too slow saying everything in trench again in English.

After Mayor Miller and the Governor General spoke, Mr. Lafond (The Governor General’s husband) took the stage to say a few words. Mr. Lafond spoke in a mix of French and English without translating back and forth. I liked how it made me focus on understanding the French parts.

The slag pouring scene in men with brooms was awesome.

Present at the event were the winners of the 2009 Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards. They are sitting in the front row with Mayor Miller and Michaëlle Jean. One of the winners was Paul Gross. Due South was an awesome show. I loved the sexual tension between Paul Gross and Camilla Scott’s characters. Also, the curling movie (men with brooms) he was in was worth watching as it was shot in Sudbury.

What was her name...argghhhh...

The idea was the evening was supposed to be a dialogue about the importance of music in society. One of the questions came from a past Much Music VJ who’s name I’ve forgotten. I think she’s with the CBC.
