Signed without signature

Subseries consists of records related to the <i>Signed Without Signature: Works by Charles and Isabella Edenshaw</i> exhibit curated by McLennan for MOA. In this exhibition, McLennan focused on showcasing Charles Edenshaw’s metalwork and painting, and Isabella Edenshaw’s basketry, to illustrate how each artist created a recognizable “signature” through art and not by physically signing their names, and how it evolved through their long careers. Records include research on the Edenshaws, exhibit photos, reviews, notes, correspondence, artifact loans, and files relating to individual museums and heritage institutions which hold Edenshaw artifacts.

Through my eyes

Subseries consists of records relating to the <i>Through My Eyes</i> exhibit held at the Museum of Vancouver.

McLennan was involved through managing the development, production and implementation of this collaborative effort.
