This blog documents Myth of the Steersman, an installation by Marcel O’Gorman designed for an exhibition called “Searching for Tom,” curated by Virginia Eichhorn of the Tom Thomson Art Gallery.
Tom Thomson (1877-1917) is one of Canada’s best-known artists. He had a great influence on The Group of Seven before his mysterious death on Canoe Lake in Algonquin Park.
