Eagles and art have inspired Thor Froslev to help the arts and culture soar in his community. Every year, the majestic birds come to Squamish to winter, and Thor founded the Brackendale Eagles Festival to celebrate the annual event, bringing the world to the town. In the early 1970s, no small BC logging town had tried establishing an art gallery. Thor convinced his neighbours it was a goal worth pursuing. His leadership and passion have made the Brackendale Art Gallery a cultural legacy for the community and its artists.
