50 Years of the Whyte Museum in Banff

Daybreak Alberta

2018 marks 50 years since the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies first opened it's doors to visitors and residents of Banff National Park. The museum was the passion and inspiration for Peter and Catherine Whyte, visual artists who reflected the park to the world. The legacy of their accomplishment and collaborations with the Nakoda people still stand thanks to the Whyte Museum and and as part of the 2018 celebrations, the museum is hosting a community barbecue on June 17. To get a little preview of the barbecue and why the Whyte Museum has been such a fixture in Banff, Russell reached one of the organizers of next Sunday's event, Kurt Bagnell, a former manager at the Banff Centre and former director of the Canmore Folk Festival.
