Documenting Our Built Heritage: Glimpses into UVic's Architectural Archive of the Pacific North West

Featuring Martin Segger (BA '69), UVic professor emeritus, adjunct professor of Canadian art and architecture and former director of the Maltwood Gallery

Diaries, notebooks, photographs, architectural drawings and other related media comprise a recent collecting initiative of the UVic Libraries' Special Collections and University Archives. Martin Segger will take you on a digital tour through some of the materials that illuminate the architectural history of this region. These documents together provide fascinating insights, not only into the story of our built environment, but also to the lives of those who made it, and the many others who recorded it, were inspired by it, and lived in it.

Professor Segger is the former director and curator of the UVic Maltwood Art Museum and Gallery (1979-2010), and recently has been assisting with the development of the Pacific Northwest Architectural Archive.

Following the presentation, attendees are invited to enjoy a special exhibit celebrating the 50th anniversary of UVic's Art History and Visual Studies department, in the Mearns Centre's Legacy Maltwood Gallery.
