Bryan Adams’ Canadians to open at Embassy of Canada Art Gallery
New Photography Exhibition by Bryan Adams brings Canadian Cultural Icons to Washington, D.C.

On October 19th, in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, the Embassy of Canada will open Canadians, a collection of photographs by Grammy Award winning music legend Bryan Adams. The exhibition features 29 portraits of Canadian icons, including: Céline Dion, KD Lang, Michael J. Fox, Margaret Atwood, Robbie Robertson, The Weeknd, Wayne Gretzky, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, on display until December 31, 2017.

“The Embassy is thrilled to host this diverse collection of famous Canadians who have helped shape our cultural identity”, says Ambassador David MacNaughton. “We are so pleased that the public will have an opportunity to experience these iconic photographs as we pay homage to Canada’s sesquicentennial in 2017.”

Although best known for his music, Adams is also an award-winning photographer. His work has been featured in Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire, and Vanity Fair in the United States, and previous photographic exhibitions have been displayed at galleries worldwide since 1999. Canadians features recently-captured images, as well as several from Adams’ personal archives. The exhibition is curated by Mat Humphrey and Anke Degenhard/Crossover.

The Embassy’s art gallery is located next to the Newseum at 501 Pennsylvania Avenue NW and is open to the public Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm, free of charge.
