RCMP Heritage Centre: Beyond Friberg Exhibition

rcmp_beyondThe RCMP Heritage Centre is proud to present a tribute exhibition to an American artist Arnold Friberg called “Beyond Friberg.” 

His artwork has become famous and has highlighted the hardships and isolation of police work carried out by members of the Force.

The image of the Force has been amplified by fictional and historical books, newspaper articles, movies, RCMP Musical Ride demonstrations and through artwork.

“Tales of the Force” by Arnold Friberg

As members on Detachment or veterans in retirement, they would seek out the calendars from the Northwest Printing company which highlighted different coloured images of the Force.  Each of these pieces of artwork were created by Arnold Friberg.
