Windsor Salt + Belcher Stone: Youth Culture in the North
April 1, 2002 - July 14, 2002
This youth-orientated exhibition explores the Arctic through models, carvings, computer-based interactive art, projections, and photography. Through a variety of media, visitors can learn more about the Belcher Island community – an island community in the southernmost part of the Arctic. Margaret Lawrence, a local artist who teaches at the Belcher Island School, will make miniatures representing contemporary and traditional living environments in the North. Wayne Tousignant, a local artist and instructor at the University of Windsor, will produce a projection of images and artwork made by Belcher Island youth. A number of interactive and tactile elements will also be included to further enhance our understanding of the North.
