Celebrating Canada 150 with Local Artists

By The CORE, Feb 15


2017 is a special year for our country as we join together as a nation and celebrate Canada's 150th birthday. Today we took a moment to reflect on the importance of our flag to our country's history and how we have become the strong country that we are today. In the words of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, "Few national symbols are as iconic as the maple leaf. Beavers and canoes may be just as enduring, but only the maple leaf has come to represent unity, hope, generosity, openness, and respect." 

In honour of this special year, we want to showcase how our nation has faced its' trials and tribulations of the past with with grace. We are inviting our local art community to create a piece that will be installed in the CORE that is reflective of our nation's past, present, and/or future. This will also be the backdrop to our Canada 150 selfie contest. If you or someone you know may be interested in submitting a piece for consideration, please click here for more details. Remember, the deadline is Friday Febraury 17th!
