THIS PLACE on Treaty 1 Territory & the homeland of the Métis Nation officially opened to the public with a free concert celebration on September 28, 2018. This is a major public art project that builds on efforts to create awareness of the rich Indigenous cultures, peoples and heritage that are at the roots of our territory, city and province. In this booklet you can read about the artworks created as part of the exhibition.
The public artworks created for the BLUE Rapid Transit Line tell stories and evoke ideas around ecology and natural history, historic north-south trails, civic planning, and Indigenous and Métis land experiences and histories. Following the river, the people, and their interactions in this area over time, seven artists weave and connect the meanings of routes in the Red River region and the Fort Garry neighbourhood.
