Regional Heritage through explorations of Historical and Contemporary Art in Ottawa
Ottawa is well-known for its architectural marvels like the Parliament Buildings and the Rideau Canal. But beyond these “official” landmarks, the city has always been home to artists highlighting alternate ways to make historical meaning. Exploring works by Ottawa-based creators including Leslie Reid (b.1947) and Jeff Thomas (b.1956), this guide facilitates learning about regional heritage by asking students to reflect upon how the past is integrated, valued, and institutionalized in the present.
