Great Art for Great Lakes - Lake Ontario Portrait
Lake Ontario Portrait is a community art project that consists of filled, transparent columns with mud samples collected along Lake Ontario’s shoreline. The sculpture was created by local artist Nicole Clouston.
As the mud is exposed to light, the microbes present in the mud will begin to grow, forming vibrant bands on the surface of the sculpture.
Great Art for Great Lakes is creating works of art in a number of Ontario communities to celebrate the importance of the largest group of freshwater lakes on Earth and to mark Canada’s 150th anniversary.
This unique exhibit will be on display on Central Library’s 4th Floor.
