I chose to participate in the show because I believe in the benefits of having tough conversations – and what is tougher than a Sir John A. Macdonald sculpture being proudly displayed on traditional Indigenous homelands. Art has always been a means of communicating that which cannot always be felt through words. The visuals can help us connect with the topic on a deeper level. That is what I believe this show achieved. I walked main street and experienced each piece of art. I displayed two pieces – one that has been shown in public a couple of times now, and one very personal. I’m grateful that I shared both pieces and worked through the fear of vulnerability in displaying them publicly in Picton.
