July 28 - Martamus and Romeo: Two Unknown Canadian Horse Stories

Two paintings from the 2012 Beauty in the Beast exhibit have a special story and place in Canadian animal history.

Using the actual paintings as a backdrop, Curator Wayne Townsend will tell the intriguing stories of Martamus, a race horse who has a hospital wing named after him and is buried at the Royal Botanical Gardens and Romeo, a heavy horse whose journey started in England and ended up in Brandon, Manitoba. 

Tickets are $10 per person, $5 for DCMA members. Please contact the DCMA 1-877-941-7787 to reserve or purchase tickets by phone.
