Devastatus Rememorari was gifted to the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia recently and is being shown at the AGNS from July 18 to December 6, 2015.  The piece was made in Halifax as a tribute to Point Pleasant Park, which suffered a devastating hurricane in 2003. With its newly certified cultural property status confirmed, the piece will be preserved under the capable stewardship of the AGNS.
