Until relatively recently, however, the collection has received limited public attention. In Art or Memorial?, author Laura Brandon explores some of the reasons why this may have been the case.

At various times throughout its history, the war art collection has receded from and re-emerged in the nations collective consciousness. Nevertheless, as an invaluable part of the official record of war in Canada, it is profoundly significant. Brandon argues that the value of the collection lies less in its artistic merit and more in its role as a site of memory. Art or Memorial? seeks to illuminate Canadian war arts sometimes-hidden presence in the nations memory and to show, through both its presence and its absence, how it helped to shape, and will continue to influence, how we remember as a nation.
