UP CLOSE: Alberta Quiltmakers and Their Quilts

What stories can quilts tell us? How are quilting materials, designs and techniques unique to Alberta?

Join RAM s Assistant Curator of Daily Life and Leisure Lucie Heins to learn all about the Alberta Quilt Project. For six years, Lucie researched and documented quilts throughout Alberta to capture the history of quilting in the province, and uncover hidden community stories.

UP CLOSE: Mysteries Melting from the Ice

As you wander through the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, you may feel very small among the rising peaks and glaciers. Yet below you, even smaller, unnoticeable collections of preserved plants, animal remains, and artifacts lie enclosed in the ice patches scattered among the mountains. Through these tiny treasures, we can unlock a glimpse into what these landscapes may have been like thousands of years ago.

Join us as we discover how people used the unique features of Alberta's mountains and ice patches, and how the forests and plants have changed over the past 6,500 years.

 

UP CLOSE: Rainbow Bright

From quilled rifle cases to handmade protest signs, RAM has plenty of colourful objects under our care. But how does the museum preserve colour of objects so they last for generations? It s a balance of light, material, and very careful calculations.

Take a deep dive to look at museum objects from a totally different perspective, learn how light and colour affect each other, and get a virtual behind-the-scenes look at the analytical techniques we use on objects.

UP CLOSE: Malignant Plastics

Many historic objects were made using chemically unstable plastics like celluloid, PVC, and rubber. Less than ideal for long-term preservation in a museum!

How do we race against time to preserve objects made from these historical, deteriorating plastics? And how do we identify which types of plastics will degrade, and which are more chemically stable?

Join us as we look at the development of some early plastics, examine military objects that used these materials in ground-breaking ways, and learn how the museum extends the life of these aging objects for future generations.
