2012 Trudeau Scholar Sara Angel was interviewed at CBC News about the new Canadian Online Art Book Project, the inaugural initiative of the Art Canada Institute.

The main goal of this project is to expand Canadians' knowledge of homegrown artists. "We want to tell the story of our nation's art history, bringing audiences closer to our extraordinary artists — some of whom are world-renowned and others who aren't yet household names but should be — in a smart, accessible format, designed for expanding online audiences," said Sara Angel, the institute's founding executive director.

Jack Chambers: Life & Work is the first book online on ACI’s website. The non-profit research organization based in Toronto will publish six to 12 free art e-books a year for the next five years.

Each volume will be available in English and French, written in an accessible, welcoming format by leading Canadian art experts, filled with images of major works and focus on either the life of an important Canadian artist or a key theme or topic in Canadian art history.
