Celebrating Canada's Future Artists

What are the traditions in your community? What objects in the home do you find beautiful? What inspires you about the night sky? How do we connect to our living world? We posed these questions to students in Grades 7 through 12 this spring, inviting them to create original projects that respond to major works by artists in Canada. From food traditions inspired by Mary Pratt’s (1935–2018) elevation of the everyday, to the luminous northern lights in Kuujjuaq, Quebec kindled by Jock Macdonald’s (1897–1960) majestic night skies, the depth and breadth of creativity represented in this year’s showcase speaks to the resonating potential of Canadian art history in today’s world—and the importance of its continued cultivation for generations to come.
