The Walrus: A Remarkable Publication

I have recently had the pleasure of exchanging email letters with Anita Stanusik of The Walrus.  What excited me about our communications, is that she introduced me to a premier Canadian magazine.  This is the first magazine I have shared with readers of 'The Portrait', and I do so because its a reflection of my respect for this publication..

THE WALRUS FOUNDATION is a charitable non-profit organization with an educational mandate to promote public debate on matters vital to our country. The foundation is dedicated to supporting Canadian writers, artists, readers, and ideas. Our job is to create and open up discussion that are currently stirring up debate in Canada. Across the country we look for outlets to start a conversation of various artistic aspects in hopes of keeping the conversation going.

We host over 30 events a year in commitment to achieve our goals. Our events not only generate temporary interest but long lasting impression on the relevance of the arts in Canada. Our work with various Canadian museums, galleries and artists are what help us properly and accurately represent the trends, issues and hot topics in art today. We also publish a magazine 10 times a year that aid The Walrus to connect with the readers on various social topics. Check out our website for great articles and podcasts that relate to visual arts in

The Walrus truly appreciates Canadian art in every form as well as giving our readers the chance to contribute to our cause. We want to settle the score with the importance of the arts in Canada.
