Assiniboine Park, Winnipeg M.B.
Works by Ivan Eyre from collection Wasteland Dreamland (1957-1969) pictured above. Quirky mixed media illustration by Marcel Dzama below.
Another gem in the city is Sargent Sundae, located just across the street from the Park's entrance on Portage Avenue. If you've got a sweet tooth, Sargent Sundae is guaranteed to satisfy it with every variety of ice cream dessert you can imagine on the menu.
The building, originally built in 1930, though it has undergone many a renovation since then, features the works of renowned Manitoba artists Ivan Eyre, Clarence Tillenius and Walter J. Phillips, as well as newer artists from all over the province.
Of course, if it's your first time to Winnipeg, The Pooh Gallery at The Pavilion is a charming glimpse at the world's most famous teddy bear and the bond between Canadian Lieutenant Harry Colebourn and his companion, a bear cub he named "Winnie" after his hometown of Winnipeg, whom Winnie The Pooh is named after. An old photograph of the two, on the left, is one of many on display.
