Indigenous artists transform tree protection hoardings outside Hart House into eye-catching murals – U of T News

by ahnationtalk on October 15, 202122 Views

With construction on the Landmark Project underway on the University of Toronto’s St. George campus, tree-protection hoardings in the Hart House Commons have inspired an Indigenous public art installation that draws attention to the land and community.

From September 2021 to Spring/Summer 2022, the project, titled Tree Protection Zone, features specially commissioned, mural-sized artworks by eight Indigenous artists and their collaborators. These works focus on the preservation of life, water and kin and how each is linked to the protection of trees. They aim to engage students and the wider public in conversations about the environment and its peoples.

The project – part of Hart House’s efforts to build a sense of community, amplify under-served voices and foster sustainability, while celebrating artists – was curated by Mikinaak Migwans, an assistant professor of Indigenous contemporary art in Canada in the Faculty of Arts & Science, and Maria Hupfield, an assistant professor of Indigenous digital arts and performance at U of T Mississauga.
