Location: Teresa Sargent Hall, Montrose Cultural Centre

Robert Guest: Passport to the PeaksThe exhibition “High Art: Passport to the Peaks” serves as a documentary of the Passport to the Peaks program which has become a part of Alberta’s history. It cements the relationship between fine art, sport and personal achievement. Artist Robert Guest and Dr. Keith Darcel are deeply connected to the natural history written all over the Canadian Rockies. Both of these men are avid outdoorsmen and have created a program that has been enticing potential climbers and hikers to experience something they have fallen passionately in love with: encountering nature.
