The Great Canadian LEED-Scape

November 2, 2017 – January 7, 2018

The Great Canadian LEED-Scape is a 53-foot-long painting, which explores the natural environment and the recent development of sustainable buildings across Canada. The painting consists of thirteen panels, one for each province and territory in Canada, which will combine to form a continuous urban landscape painting. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized rating system that aims to classify and encourage sustainable buildings.

The Great Canadian LEED-Scape was created by artist Amy Shackleton.

This piece is presented by the Elaine Fleck Gallery. For more information on the piece, visit the Elaine Fleck Gallery’s website here.
