On March 30, 2010, the Art Bank was the place to be for artists and art lovers alike in the Ottawa area. Working alongside the Governor General's office and the Canada Council for the Arts, the Art Bank hosted the 48th Art Matters forum. The event was a great opportunity for the laureates of the 2010 Governor General's Awards in Visual and Media Arts to meet members of the Ottawa community. The Art Bank featured art works by the laureates and works from recent purchases.
