Everyone is invited to an Indigenous Art Walk and Spring Equinox Celebration.
Starting at 11:30 a.m. on March 20 at the gazebo in Burlington’s Spencer Smith Park, the event will include an opening prayer, art walk through nine Indigenous pieces at the park, a ceremonial fire and the unveiling of a new art piece at Joseph Brant Museum. The walk is expected to end at the museum at roughly noon.
Angela Paparizo, manager of arts and culture at the City of Burlington, said the local art commissions celebrate the work of local First Nations, Métis and Inuit artists.
“This meaningful collection of Indigenous art for Spencer Smith Park is very important: It creates a more beautiful and meaningful space for everyone and helps to remind us of the land we’re on. I’m grateful to the work of these artists and the collaboration with local Indigenous peoples in helping us with this project and important celebration,” said Paparizo.
