The Canadian Icons Still Getting Fan Mail Long After Death

There are signs that the Group of Seven is finally hip with the Canadian people, even those who don't go to art galleries. At the end of last week's taping I took the TV crew to see the Group of Seven cemetery. We got there and I found that someone had taken the time to write fan letters to the long-dead artists and placed them in front of their rough-rock headstones.

My, Is That Group of Seven You're Wearing?

Back in the early 70s, Ryerson Polytechnical Institute was Canada's incubator for the practical arts: journalism, radio, television, layout, design, fashion, theatre and photography. I can't remember anything I wrote, but I do remember the photographs. They were outstanding -- cutting edge. None more so than those that came from the camera of Yuri Dojc.
