and Spencer Clark
colleagues and friends of Rosa and Spencer Clark as a tribute to their
life work in conservation, the arts and other facets of community service.
The Guild of
All Arts, co-founded by them as a haven for artists and craftsmen, became
a cultural sanctuary attracting visitors from around the world. Rosa
Clark, with her gifted talents, was an inspiration to all until her death
cities began their transition from classical stone and marble buildings
to contemporary styles, Spencer Clark had the foresight to save the important
features from over sixty buildings and create Canada's first architectural
museum with a Greek theatre as the centre piece. His collection of
sculpture became the nucleus for his vision of a greater sculpture park.
The Guild is
an integral part of the social fabric of this country and has touched the
lives of countless individuals and groups from every walk of life.
It came into public hands in 1978 but Spencer Clark continued its operation
and further enrichment until December 31, 1983.
