Louvre Abu Dhabi Opens with Transformational Exhibition

“Many will acclaim this museum building as a wonder of the world, I acclaim it as a wonder of the mind” says Gail Lord, President and Co-Founder of Lord Cultural Resources.

After more than 10 years in the making, the Louvre Abu Dhabi has opened, becoming the first Universal Museum in the Arab world. "Being a universal museum means that its collections are from the world's many cultures," explains Gail, "but the Louvre Abu Dhabi under the inspired leadership of its director Manuel Rabate and his Emirate Colleagues has given the concept of 'universal museum' a new meaning - one in which the humanity and creativity of all cultures is recognized as equal."

Our Journey Toward Canada's Holocaust Monument

The National Holocaust Monument will be Canada’s first national monument dedicated to the Holocaust. Located in Ottawa, the nation’s capital, the Monument will honour and commemorate those who were murdered under Nazi tyranny as well as acknowledge those survivors who were able to come to Canada. The monument is set to be Innaugerated on September 27th, 2017. And will be open to the public on September 28th.

This thought piece by Gail Dexter Lord and Dov Goldstein, reflects on Lord Cultural Resources' journey towards the creation of the National Holocaust Monument in Canada-- from the initial Request for Qualifications through to opening day. This includes the development of the right team, and concept, in order to strike a balance between the Holocaust's universal significance and the Canadian context.
