Alberta Culture Days

Starting in the early 1900s, people came from eastern and western Europe, the United States, and other parts of Canada to make a living in the coal mining valley of the Crowsnest Pass. They brought cultural traditions with them that have made the area a hotbed of artistic and musical creativity. Culture Days showcases the vibrant culture of the Crowsnest Pass amid the breathtaking beauty of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.


Free Admission at the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre Friday through Sunday


A Slow Light

Art Exhibit

Friday – Sunday, September 28-30

Frank Slide Interpretive Centre


In a slow light, Los-Jones generates wayfinding experiences by disorienting and reorienting the viewer with the material history of the Crowsnest Pass. The interplay of manmade objects with coal and limestone reminds us of humanity’s short time within the region by alluding to the geological forces that have been at play for millions of years—forces that are too slow to watch, but too powerful to overlook.

Drawing Home

Boston in the 1920s. A young East Coast debutante is dating the most eligible bachelor in the world, John D. Rockefeller III. Her future seems set: a dream life in the upper echelons of society. But when she least expects it, she meets a young painter from one of the most beautiful places on Earth, the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Their worlds are polar opposites, and as their attraction turns their lives upside down, they soon face a universal question: Can you find “home” in another person? Inspired by a true story.
