Painter and sculptor Ivan Kenneth Eyre has been named a member of the Order of Canada. Eyre is one of three Winnipeggers to be appointed for his contributions to Winnipeg’s arts community. Eyre studied fine art at the University of Manitoba and shortly after joined the faculty there until he retired in the early 1990s.
The Order of Canada began in 1967 to recognize outstanding achievement, dedication and service to the community and the country.
Since it was established, more than 6,000 people from all sectors of society have been appointed to the Order.
