He is indeed. We saw the Lawren Harris exhibit of which he was guest curator (mentioned in that article) at the Art Gallery of Ontario last year. Quite interesting, and they had his opening remarks on a video loop at the entrance.

Not bad for a scruffy Ranger!
Yep. He's also a singer-songwriter, and at Howard Shore's request wrote the melody that Aragorn sings at his coronation in The Return of the King (at 3:45 here; the words are Tolkien's): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jJnyyta07k
