Building Cultural Legacies

Finding and sharing the history of visual arts in Hamilton

The Building Cultural Legacies project will capture and broadly disseminate stories about this history of visual arts in Hamilton, through a collective memory approach. The Ontario Trillium Foundation’s investment will build online, social and exhibition platforms that will share these memories, hold community knowledge, and promote pride and understanding. Building Cultural Legacies will ensure that today’s generation of artists and residents value the significant contributions made by their predecessors, and will set the stage for Hamilton’s continued cultural growth.


Welcome back to the Building Cultural Legacies Collage Party!

We invite you to the opening of an exhibition of collages from our inaugural Collage Party with Drew Taylor and friends. Grab a drink, a glue stick and some magazines, and contribute your creation to the exhibition! DJ Trisha Leigh Lavoie will be serving 60’s French pop and weirdo realness on the turntables. We supply the materials. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!

Building Cultural Legacies celebrates the visual arts in Hamilton and is part of HAMILTON ARTS WEEK. Exhibition runs June 2 – 9 2018.

WHEN: Tuesday, June 5 at 7 PM - 9 PM
WHERE: Redchurch Cafe + Gallery, Victoria Hall, 68 King St. East, Hamilton, ON

Drew Taylor is a Hamilton-based collage artist. His work is an intuitive process that uses chance and play in an effort to combine and reassemble chimeras and landscapes that reflect the contemporary world in its rapidly shifting realities.
