    Saturday May 6, 2023 at 3:00pm

    Choose your art supplies and get to work creating the most hideous work of art you can. Once everyone has finished creating their amazingly abominable artworks, you'll be invited to show off your pieces in a short 'exhibition', where the Best Bad Art will be decided. The winner will leave with a trophy and the respect of the fine art community. 

    Join us in a fun, tacky, and no-pressure type atmosphere with good conversation and refreshments.

    Will you create the Best Bad Art?

    On the eve of May Day 1898, Lady Aberdeen summoned the daughters of Ottawa's "finest families" and challenged them to make it their mission to help others; to carry their talents and concerns forth into the world under the banner of service.

    Thus was born the May Court Club: an organization that answered Lady Aberdeen's call admirably. For over a century, the Club's members fought tuberculosis and provided care and support to those in need.

    Come hear Nancy Pyper, former president of the May Court Club of Ottawa, recall the remarkable legacy of this organization.
