Prince Charles and Governor General David Johnston will take part in the grand opening ceremony of the National Arts Centre’s spectacular new atrium on Canada Day.
The event will mark the end of phase one of the $110.5 million NAC Architectural Project, the biggest investment in cultural infrastructure by the Government of Canada to mark the sesquicentennial.
The Ribbon Cutting ceremony will include 150 Canadians – artists, architects, construction workers, NAC staff and patrons, as well as members of the public – along the NAC’s rejuvenated Elgin Street façade.
To celebrate the grand opening and Canada Day, the NAC is hosting a number of free performances tomorrow and Sunday.
