Ron Thom Exhibition

West Coast Points East: Ron Thom and the Allied Arts, a traveling exhibition showcasing the work of one of British Columbia’s most widely recognized architects, will run from July 5 to September 21. 2013at the West Vancouver Museum. A recipient of the Order of Canada and numerous Massey Awards for architecture, Thom is regarded as one of Canada’s most innovative and influential architects.
