  • Statement in 1991: Why Banff? Searching for the muse!

    The Muses were nine goddesses of the arts and sciences in Greek mythology.The Muses lived on Mount Olympus with their leader, the god Apollo. Like him the Muses remained young and beautiful forever.They could see into the future, which few other gods could do. They also had the ability to banish all grief and sorrow. The muses had pleasing melodic voices and often sang as a chorus.Early Greek writers and artists called on the muses for inspiration before beginning to work.
