TD presents...Postcards from Mars

April 17 to June 18, 2015

Over 1500 K-12 students from 37 schools across the province are participating in Postcards from Mars. Students were invited to imagine what life might look like on the planet Mars and design and compose a postcard to a friend or loved one back on Earth. Their work will be displayed at the UNB Art Centre in Memorial Hall (9 Bailey Drive, on UNB campus) from Apr. 17 until Jun. 18.

Postcards from Mars will open on Saturday, Apr. 25 at 1 p.m. and will feature science activities for all ages with Science East, and representatives from TD Bank Group, UNB’s UFirst: Student Recruitment, and the Canada Wide Science Fair will be on hand to support the festivities. Art lovers of all ages, and especially students, teachers, and parents are invited to attend.

In conjunction with UNB’s Andrews Initiative and other partners, the UNB Art Centre is supporting Col. Chris Hadfield’s visit to the University of New Brunswick on Apr. 21, 2015. On this date, Col. Hadfield will speak to the students and teachers who have participated in Postcards from Mars live on campus and via a simultaneous webcast. Students and teachers from participating schools will also tour the exhibition and see their work in the gallery spaces.

The UNB Art Centre gratefully acknowledges TD Bank Group’s generous support of this exhibition. Their contribution assisted the UNB Art Centre in offering a multi-cultural, multi-generational and multi-disciplinary approach to visual literacy.

The UNB Art Centre is located at Memorial Hall, 9 Bailey Drive, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton. The galleries are open 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. weekdays and for special events. Admission is free to members of the public. Everyone welcome!
