Lonsdale Avenue Magazine is thrilled to announce the launch of the Museum of North Vancouver’s upcoming exhibition, Found in the Mountains, a tribute to the awe-inspiring beauty, enduring spirit, and deep cultural significance of the North Shore mountains. Opening on July 19, 2024, this exhibition unveils a rich variety of ancient stories and contemporary life in the mountains. The North Shore mountains, which once attracted timber explorers and now draw adventurers from around the globe for recreational activities, are the stars of this show. They play a vital role in our thriving tourism economy, but their significance goes much deeper. For the First Nations people, these landscapes have always held a profound spiritual connection that continues to this day.

Zoe Mackoff de Miranda, the Director of MONOVA, shared her excitement about the exhibition: “Whether you’re an avid adventurer or a curious traveller, we’re excited to offer a space where people can connect with the mountains on a deeper level. This exhibition is not just about the visual splendour of the mountains, but also about understanding their role in our lives and their importance to our heritage.”

The exhibition’s sub-themes present unique perspectives on how these wild and captivating environments influence our way of life, our recreational activities, and our connection to the land. Visitors will be transported from sea to sky through archival photographs, knit collections, and mountaineering equipment developed on local slopes, showcasing the remarkable bonds between the mountains and our community.

Mark your calendars for July 19 and join us at the Museum of North Vancouver, located at 115 West Esplanade. The exhibition will run until January 12, 2025, and there will be special events and guided tours available throughout its duration. For more details, check out monova.ca.

We also want to acknowledge that MONOVA: Museum and Archives of North Vancouver is situated on the traditional lands of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations. Their ancestors have lived on this land for countless generations, and we are grateful for the opportunity to live, work, and learn on unceded Coast Salish Territory.
