Art installations unveiled on campuses of CECC, Huron, UWindsor, USask

Several postsecondary institutions across Canada have recently unveiled art installations on campus. A mural titled Wisdom from the Land (Sagesse de la terre) has been unveiled at the opening of the Centre d’Études Collégiales à Chibougamau’s new Indigenous student space. The mural was created collaboratively by Cree artist Jimmy Tim Whiskeychan and non-Indigenous artist Stéfanie Thompson as part of an effort to help Indigenous students attending the cégep feel at home. Huron University has received a new statue from Haudenosaunee artist Leroy Henry titled Eagle Tree of Peace. The statue, which was designed by Henry’s father and had been in progress for around 38 years, is a reminder of reconciliation. The University of Windsor’s downtown campus unveiled a statue of abolitionist ad newspaper publisher Mary Ann Shadd Cary. The statue honours her legacy and represents a commitment to inclusivity. The University of Saskatchewan installed a 58-foot-long neon sculpture on campus that was created by Wally Dion, an artist from the Yellow Quill First Nation (Saulteaux).
