Resort development up next for museum 

Period between ’75 and ’90 the focus of new exhibition

The Whistler Museum and Archives is planning a new comprehensive exhibit on Whistler’s resort development period.

Curator Kerry Clark said while the museum has acquired significant materials on Whistler’s pioneer era and the era spanning the 1960s and ’70s, there is a need to document the resort development phase in Whistler’s history, which she defines as the years spanning 1975-1990.

Clark said the museum has been granted access to both the RMOW’s archives and Whistler-Blackcomb’s archives for the project, neither of which currently have comprehensive inventories. The project will also seek to document interviews with people integral to the resort’s development such as Whistler Village master planner Eldon Beck.

Clark will direct the research for the exhibit over the next three months with the help of a research assistant and contract video technician, new positions funded by a recently awarded $4,200 grant from the Spirit of B.C. Arts Fund.
