The Op. 39 quintet by Prokofiev is based on his ballet, Trapeze, which was written during his time in Paris. The strange, virtuosic, and sometimes grotesque music perfectly represents circus performers and carnival sights. 
Centred around the Prokofiev, our quirky program explores light and dark music by these four swell composers.

The Orie O. Miller Diary, 1920-21

Representing the newly-formed Mennonite Central Committee, twenty-eight-year-old Miller was one of three American Mennonites who set sail in 1920 to bring relief to fellow Mennonites in war-torn Russia.

A New Era of Peace and a Peaceful Land

This exhibition, sponsored by Mennonite Central Committee and curated by the Korean Art Forum, collects rarely seen works by American, Chinese, North and South Korean artists.

Sites of Nonresistance.

War monuments, cenotaphs and honour rolls remind us daily of the most dramatic and familiar stories of war.  This exhibit tells war stories of a different kind, and lays out an alternative memorial landscape—the landscape of nonresistance.

These stories are gleaned from letters, diaries, newspapers, photographs, government documents and family histories found in the Mennonite Archives of Ontario. Together, they paint a picture of the Great War from a “peace church” perspective.
