Heritage Habitats exhibit at the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum - Ontario Heritage Trust

Heritage Habitats exhibit at the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum

Runs until March 14, 2020

Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. (closed Sunday and Monday)

This innovative exhibit – seen for the first time in Canada – brings together the work of two accomplished American artists: Ginger Owen-Murakami and Vicki VanAmeyden.

Founded on universal human experience, Heritage Habitats invites viewers to explore a series of physical spaces and contemplate our own process of self-discovery. As the artist statement says, “Framed around nostalgia and memory, Kites, Hankies, Registered and Waterways are large-scale, sculptural and experiential installations that engage in viewers’ unique memories and experiences … the work emphasizes commonalities that bind people and cultures and serve as an expression of humanism.”

Curator of the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum for over a decade, Michael Rikley-Lancaster says, “We were thrilled to be approached about hosting this intriguing exhibit. Telling history through art ties in perfectly with what is sure to be an eventful year at the museum.”

Museum admission: $7
