Relax and Have a Seat At Home in Bronte
Join us for Bronte’s annual July 1st Canada Day Celebration when we launch the At Home in Bronte, Perspectives & Reflections Public Art Exhibit.
More than 60 uniquely designed Muskoka chairs, painted by Oakville artists, families, organizations and businesses will be placed throughout Bronte Heritage Park and Bronte Pier for the enjoyment of all visitors.
Each chair celebrates the national pride, historic achievements and cultural diversity of Oakville, Ontario and Canada on the 150th Anniversary.
The exhibit runs July 1 to September 5, 2017
Chair designs will be featured by organizations, such as Big Brothers Big Sisters of Halton, Oakville Community Foundation, Bronte Historical Society, Oakville Art Society, Oakville Public Library, Town of Oakville Mayor Rob Burton’s office, Canadian Association for Girls in Science, Oakvillegreen Conservation Association, Arthouse, Oakville Community Foundation and many other great Oakville groups and families.
We are thankful to the government of Ontario for the Ontario150 funding that enables us to bring together and celebrate the impressive talents and national pride of so many families, artists, and organizations for the At Home in Bronte initiative.
The Bronte Village BIA encourages all of Oakville to participate in this community-wide initiative through social media using hashtag #AtHomeinBronte.
