February Showcase of Arts and Heritage

The Community Arts and Heritage Education Project is showcasing Arts and Heritage in the Community from February 14th to March 1st. Featured in the festival are opportunities to create your own unique art piece, to learn more about local culture and to enjoy art created by local students. The Festival kicks off on Friday Feb 15th from 4-7 with an opportunity to get creative in the old CIBC Bank space on Victoria Ave. Snow and ice will naturally be the medium, but don’t worry hot chocolate will be on hand! Enjoy the weekend and join us for a chance to create a song with Rodney Brown during the launch of the War of 1812 Project at Fort William Historical Park during the Voyageur Winter Carnival Feb 16th to 18th. You can also be inspired by music in our Art Create at the Learning Café on Saturday Feb 16 from 5-8. The art made will be auctioned in the Art Take at the end of the evening. Look for activities and exhibits through the February 16th to March 7th at such venues as the Mary JL Black Library, the Canada Games Complex, the Baggage Building Arts Centre, Magnus Theatre, Lake Superior Gallery, Waverley Library, Studio 33, the Thunder Bay Art Gallery, the Creative Commons, the Boys and Girls Club, the Northwestern Ontario Sports Hall of Fame and the 55plus Centre. The support of the Ontario Arts Council, City of Thunder Bay, United Way, Johansen Larsen Foundation, and Government of Canada is gratefully acknowledged.
