Colour of the River Running Through Usparticipatory art installation. Jul 1-Aug 16.
To celebrate the heritage of Ontario and the PanAm / ParaPanAm Games' community spirit, the McMichael presents Colour of the River Running Through Us, a sculptural-based public art installation conceived by Thom Sokoloski.
As part of this project, the grounds of the McMichael become a "river" for an amassed flotilla of canoe-inspired structures hovering above visitors and heading west. Each sculpture contains a vessel in which those who wish to participate in a meditative and creative process may add their experience of river water through the writing of a haiku poem. The installation is a metaphor for the power and poetry of our river systems: how they flow through our lives to evoke dreams, inspire imagination, and drive our deepest hopes, and how, through a participatory ceremony / ritual, we are becoming the river itself.
Wed 1 Jul, 11am-4pm: Canada Day & opening of Colour of the River Running Through Us installation. Recognizing the role that the Humber River has played in both the history of Aboriginal people and explorers, the McMichael celebrates Ontario's 400th anniversary of francophone presence with the opening of Thom Sokoloski's installation Colour of the River Running Through Us. Enjoy various activitie for the family, including a musical drama created by Hugh Barnett and the Carrying Place Ensemble focusing on the history of this heritage trail. Opening remarks at 1pm, followed by Canada Day cupcakes. 11am-12:30pm: Colour of the River Running Through Us Artist Talk. Thom Sokoloski in conversation with Shawn Micallef.
