  • Ottawa Art Gallery
    As the leaves began to slip into their autumnal shades in September of 1988, Ottawa’s artists won a years-long battle to secure their city a municipal art gallery of its very own. Built with the hopes of showcasing the unique energy and voices of the local artistic scene, the Ottawa Art Gallery (OAG) has, in the two decades since its founding, upheld its advocacy and celebration of municipal talent with an ever-changing roster of exhibits. An ongoing lineup of interactive programs and events cultivates a community of art lovers and sparks cultural discussions. Meanwhile, kids' art camps bolster the creativity of local youngsters and the egos of any cryogenically defrosted Monets in attendance. The OAG also houses the Firestone Collection of Canadian Art, a compendium of upward of 1,600 homegrown masterpieces from the modern period featuring celebrated artists including Emily Carr, Jack Shadbolt, and Paul-Émile Borduas.

  • Dna 11
    DNA 11 is the leading producer of DNA portraits, a truly personalized form of art based on each patron's unique genetic makeup. The process begins with you choosing your style, color, or additional options for your custom work of art. Additional options such as a duplicate DNA mini portrait ($99), a high-resolution digital download ($50), or the addition of your signature ($50) cost extra. After checkout, you'll wait a few days for a DNA-collection kit and instructions to arrive at your address so you can provide a small genetic sample (painlessly taken with a sterilized cheek swab included in the conveniently mailed kit). When you ship the DNA sample back in a pre-addressed envelope from the kit, an authentic DNA image will be generated in a genetic lab. After the DNA is captured for a perfect, raw digital image, the sample is destroyed.
