  • This Anne Place: Anne of Green Gables as Idea, Book and Musical

    A 50th anniversary exhibition that celebrates the generative genius of L.M. Montgomery, her novel Anne of Green Gables, and the golden 50th season of the Confederation Centre's beloved Anne of Green Gables-The Musical™. L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables is even more than a classic novel and brilliant musical: it inspires a state of mind, a way of being in a special place. This "Anne place" is suffused with colour and charged with energy; it is Prince Edward Island, and it is also the landscape of the human heart.

    During this 150th anniversary of the Charlottetown Conference that began Canada, and the 50th anniversary of the Confederation Centre of the Arts built to commemorate that historic meeting, this exhibition celebrates Montgomery's generative genius and the golden 50th season of the Confederation Centre's crown jewel, Anne of Green Gables-The Musical™.

  • Telling Stories

    Complementing 4000 works of art with 400 lesson plans generated by a team of educators, Telling Stories uses the Confederation Centre Art Gallery collection and works of art from gallery collections across Canada to explore the symbols and icons that are used in the artworks to tell stories about the geographical, historical, and cultural make-up of Canada. Telling Stories was co-produced in 1998 by the Gallery and the Prince Edward Island Department of Education, with support from the Department of Canadian Heritage. A print version of the program is currently used at the Grade 8 level throughout the province.
