Installation will showcase art and culture within the Kitchener-Waterloo community
Kitchener, ON – THEMUSEUM, in downtown Kitchener, will host its third annual Refugee Art Show from June 3 to June 21, which coincides with World Refugee Day, observed every year on June 20.
This year’s show is in collaboration with Immigration Partnership and Community Coalition on Refugee and Immigrant Concerns (CCORIC). This year’s theme will be “I am a refugee, what do you see?”
Interested artists are invited to attend the first planning meeting, which will be held at THEMUSEUM (10 King St. West at Queen Street, Kitchener) on April 29, 2015 beginning at 5:00pm. Interested artists can contact THEMUSEUM’s Nicole Reindl at Nicole.Reindl@THEMUSEUM.ca.
“THEMUSEUM is based on four pillars: Family Experience, Museum After Dark, Exhibitions, and Community Stage,” explained David Marskell, CEO of THEMUSEUM. “The Refugee Art Show is an excellent opportunity to showcase our brand as a community stage. Artists from throughout the Waterloo Region will have their art on display, and showcase their unique culture and identity.”
In past years the Refugee Art Show has displayed numerous works of art, ranging in various styles, sizes and themes. It allows artists to showcase their unique ideas, experiences and culture to visitors from the Waterloo Region and beyond, and helps THEMUSEUM maintain its reputation as a leading cultural hub for Southwestern Ontario.
The Refugee Art Show will open on June 3, 2015. More information can be found online at www.THEMUSEUM.ca.
