Spotlight: aMUSE: Exhibits Unleashed

Here at Panoramic Properties, we’re proud to be a part many culturally rich communities and cities throughout Ontario. In an effort to connect with our apartment communities, we’ll be on the lookout for great weekend events this summer. Follow our blog for feature posts on concerts and festivals throughout Ontario. Today, we feature a unique event happening in St. Catharines to kick off the summer.

 

This Saturday, May 25, the Mahtay Café and Lounge will play host to a pop-up museum experience, aMuse: Exhibits Unleashed. This evening event comes to you courtesy of the St. Catharines Museum & Welland Canals Centre. This is a great weekend activity that reflects on the history of St. Catharines and promises to be an excellent party.

 

This one-night exhibit explores the great history that St. Catharines has with bicycles. The city was once home to the Welland Vale Company that evolved into one of Canada’s largest bicycle manufacturers.  Today, attendees may better know the Welland Vale Company as the famous sports equipment company CCM.

 

aMuse will feature bicycles from the museum’s collection throughout the Café. One of the goals of the museum’s event is to bring these items from the collection into a social and accessible atmosphere. Away from the confines of the museum, the event allows the public and participants to discuss, share and interact with history.

 

Getting away from the museum also makes history feel more accessible. Instead of looking at artifacts in a formal museum setting, attendees are encouraged to interact with the collection items on a more personal level. Of course, the addition of food, drink and music also helps to break down any formality. Beyond the historic bicycle collection, the night will also feature the talents of local musicians, Brittany Brooks and Aaron Berger.
