King Heritage & Culture off-site exhibitions - within our community and beyond!
In late 2016, a collection, of over 400 Canadian-themed Wedgwood pieces, was donated to the KHCC by the Estate of the late Keith Alwyn McLeod (1935-2014); it is arguably the most complete collection of Canadian-themed Wedgwood in existence.
Beyond Blue & White: Wedgwood Designed for Canada is a new travelling exhibit designed by KHCC staff and available for rental by other institutions. The exhibit explores the Canadian theme and showcases over 60 unique pieces of Wedgwood.
