Manitoba, in partnership with the Winnipeg Art Gallery, invite you to the unveiling of a quilt/blanket wall hanging created by families of Manitoba’s missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls in their honour.  Blankets are traditionally given to grieving families to symbolically show community support, caring and love through their loss.

You are welcome to visit the Off the Beaten Path: Violence, Women and Art exhibit.
