TORONTO, Sept. 17 /CNW/ - A unique project that combines environmental
education with collaborative art has found a permanent home at the Centennial
HP Science and Technology Centre. The papier-mâché sculpture mosaic - a
collaboration between Pamela of Masque and Lake Ontario Water Keeper - will be
formally unveiled on Tuesday, Sept. 18 at the college campus.
The wall-mounted mosaic is composed of 160 representations of the
elements of watershed ecology by grade 6, 7 and 8 students, Toronto community
members, and Centennial College students and their families. The project
involved learning through the arts to promote environmental awareness,
teamwork and artistic development.
"Just as Lake Ontario is born of the many rivers that feed it, the mosaic
is born of the many people who create it," says community artist and project
coordinator Pamela Schuller. "The participants learned that each small piece
of art they create contributes to the success of the whole."
The Ontario Arts Council funded the project, which toured Toronto's civic
centres, York University, Centennial College and Mississauga Library. The
colourful 8.5-metre long installation will be on display permanently in the
first-floor Commons area of the Centennial HP Centre on Morningside Ave.
