Buffalo: Architectural Treasures and Contemporary Art

Full day bus tour

Maximum capacity: 50

** Member alert:  passports required.

Minimum capacity: 40

Disabled Access--Yes

Please register by March 7th.

Situated on the port of Lake Erie, and shaped by a L’Enfant-based radial city plan and Frederick Law Olmsted’s first city park system, the city of Buffalo, which at the turn of the century was a bustling railroad and industrial hub, possesses many architectural masterpieces from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. These masterpieces include Adler and Sullivan's elegant terracotta Guaranty building, H. H. Richardson's massive Buffalo State Hospital and Towers, Richard Upjohn's St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral, five prairie houses by Frank Lloyd Wright, and Daniel Burnham’s  Ellicott Square building, plus grand Delaware Avenue houses by McKim, Mead, and White and others. Twentieth century works include the Saarinen’s Kleinhans Music Hall, the M & T Bank building by Yamasaki, as well as the University at Buffalo campus which includes buildings by Marcel Breuer, I.M. Pei, Paul Rudolph, and others.

 In addition to its architectural legacy, the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy, founded in 1859, and now the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, was a pioneer in the contemporary art movement, recognizing early the promise of contemporary art, purchasing Picasso’s “La Toilette,” in 1926 (before the founding of MOMA in 1929), and having the foresight to pursue acquisition of an impressive collection of contemporary art from those early years to the present.

 The goal of this preconference tour is to provide visitors with a rich visual overview of Buffalo’s architectural and contemporary art treasures, with curated visits to three main sites: the Albright- Knox Art Gallery www.albrightknox.org , Frederick Law Olmsted’s Delaware Park, and the acclaimed Frank Lloyd Wright Darwin D. Martin House Complex www.darwinmartinhouse.org . The tour will begin with a birds eye view of Buffalo’s city plan and architectural highlights from atop the observation deck of Buffalo’s impressive City Hall  and will include drive-bys of some of the highlights. It will then proceed to the three main sites.  Lunch and snacks, plus a video presentation for background will be included.

Speakers: Denise Prince, Frank R. Kowsky, Jack Quinan, Eric Jackson-Fosberg

Opening Plenary Speaker - Diana Thorneycroft

Winnipeg artist Diana Thorneycroft is internationally recognized for her darkly amusing and disturbing evocations of Canadian cultural icons and historic events in “Group of Seven Awkward Moments.” Her most recent work “A People’s History” moves beyond awkward to horrific and traumatic, documenting moments in Canadian history that are difficult to look at but must be seen. “In making this work I do not intend to mock or diminish the traumas that occurred. Rather, my intention is to consider what took place, why it took place, why it took place here, and reflect it back to all of us for whom it resonates. From this angle, perhaps we can begin to understand these events, and maybe learn something about ourselves that we may not like; that we need to address.”

Colouring with Artists: Librarians Coordinating and Facilitating Information Creation and Appropriation in the Studio

Moderator: Jill Luedke, Temple University

Speakers:

Effie Patelos, Concordia University, “Research Intersections within Practice: Artists and Librarians”.

Ellen Urton/Blake Belanger, Kansas State Univ., “Design Studio Redux: experiments in embedded librarianship”.

Paul Dobbs/Greg Wallace, Massachuetts College of Art and Design, “JeopARTy Game Show: teaching ethics of appropriation at MassArt”.

As we learn more about the information needs and seeking behavior of studio artists and designers the relationship between librarians and these patrons becomes increasingly more interactive. Using the role of the librarian as the centerpiece of our panel session, each presenter will discuss various ways to preserve and strengthen this relationship. Patelos will re-investigate the panel session Research Intersections within Practice: Artists and Librarians hosted by ARLIS/NA Ontario in March 2011, which discusses the intersection between research and art practice and how librarians can act as facilitators in the creative process. Urton and Belanger outline their ongoing experience in “embedded librarianship” which involves the collaborative partnership between a Visual Resources Librarian and the Department of Landscape Architecture/Regional & Community Planning at Kansas State University. Dobbs and Wallace demonstrate how to address the ethical and legal quagmire of appropriating images through an interactive game show, JeopARTy, developed at Massachusetts College of Art and Desgn.

Future of Art Bibliography Initiative

Co-moderators: Carole Ann Fabian, Columbia University & Kathleen Salomon (Getty Research Institute)

Speakers:

Carole Ann Fabian, Columbia University. "Disciplinary Vertical"

Kathleen Salomon, Getty Research Institute. "FAB Initiative R&D Update"

Joe Shubitowski, Getty Research Institute. "Prototyping a Discovery Portal for Digitized Content"

Michael Rocke, Harvard University. "Artlibraries.net: update"

Debbie Kempe, Frick Art Reference Library. "Bringing Light to the Black Hole: Experiments in Archiving Born-Digital Materials"

Chris Sala, Columbia University. "Capturing the Web"

Art and architectural scholars have long relied on a set of discipline-based bibliographic resources to support their research. In recent years, the dissolution of some of these resources coupled with shifts in research interest has prompted leaders in our field to redefine what is meant by a disciplinary ‘bibliography’, and to seek an innovative approach for creating a flexible future bibliography for our field. Librarians, scholars, publishers, and information technologists have gathered to participate in an international community-driven initiative that envisions a global approach to capturing an ever-evolving definition of what is meant by ‘bibliography’ and as a practical matter, to form the Future of Art Bibliography (FAB) Initiative. It is clear from these discussions that scholarly behaviors in our field often require research in both deep and narrow disciplinary channels, as well as mechanisms to explore in more broadly interdisciplinary literature.The FAB Initiative strives to use advanced technologies to bring  diverse publication types together in a unified discovery and use environment. This session will provide an update on the FAB Initiative and some projects in cooperative digitization, aggregated bibliographic portals, and web-archiving.

Unexpected Legacy Collections: progressive collection policies and practices for zines, minicomics, and alternative presses

Moderator: Deborah Ultan Boudewyn, University of Minnesota

Speakers:

Deborah Ultan Boudewyns, University of Minnesota & Marshall Weber, Booklyn Artists Alliance

Susan Thomas, Long Island University. "Too Cool for School: Artists' Zines in Academic Libraries"

Stephanie Grimm, University of Michigan. "Minicomics: the (not so small) task of building a collection in a university library"

Celina Williams & Leila Prasertwaitaya, Virginia Commonwealth University. "Collecting the Uncollectable: Zines in Archives"

Addressing the category Collecting New Information Objects, this session features discussion on a special area of collecting that includes archival collections of alternative presses, minicomics and zines. Within the maturation of the field of artists’ books are the growing collections of artist bookmakers, zinesters, and alternative presses. The first generation of artists and presses in the late 20th Century, that identified themselves as interdisciplinary artist book artists or zine makers, rather than printers, publishers or fine press proprietors, is an aging generation leaving an incredible legacy behind. Introducing the topic, in a slightly new format, will be a dynamic conversation between Deborah Ultan Boudewyns and special guest, Marshall Weber, Booklyn Artists Alliance. Panelist, Susan Thomas, will focus on the reasons for collecting zines related to teaching and learning. Stephanie Grimm will explain how a collection policy for graphic and cartooning formats can be configured to fit a multi-tiered academic institutional library. Celina Williams & Leila Prasertwaitaya close the session with an evolved framework from which libraries may consider adopting collection policies to include alternative forms of publications.

Canadian Art-Making and Making Art Exhibitions: Archivists, Librarians and Curators.

Moderator: Liv Valmested, Univ. of Manitoba

Speakers:

Amy Furness and Georgiana Uhlyarik, Art Gallery of Ontario, " Betty Goodwin: Work Notes"

Tobi Bruce, Art Gallery of Hamilton, "William Kurelek, The Messenger"

Randall Speller,  Art Gallery of Ontario, retired, "Thoreau on Thoreau: a Canadian look at an American Classic"

The 2010-2011 exhibition Betty Goodwin: Work Notes featured over 80 of the artist’s notebooks, tracing ideas and visual motifs through five decades of Goodwin’s career and including just six works of art.  Far from being an “archival” show, the exhibition was an outstanding success as a contemporary art installation, and was named the top exhibition of the year by the Toronto Star

Canadian painter William Kurelek was an intriguing combination of everyman and visionary, and his work, currently on view at the Art Gallery of Hamilton, is equally complex.  In 1997 Kurelek’s widow deposited 4000 photographic images taken by her husband to Library and Archives Canada.  An exploration of this body of work vis-à-vis the painter’s oeuvre allows us to reconsider the ways in which he structured his compositions by using photography to reconcile image, memory and place. 

J.E.H. MacDonald, a founding member of the Group of Seven, was a devotee of Henry David Thoreau, going so far as to name his only child after the philosopher.  Subsequently, Thoreau MacDonald, one of Canada’s foremost illustrators and book designers, admitted to a lifelong affinity for his namesake.  A recently re-discovered 1933 manuscript of illustrations and book designs by him for an unpublished illustrated edition of Walden has now come into the collection Edward P. Taylor Research Library and Archives (Art Gallery of Ontario).

Digital Humanities, the changing book, and the new librarianship

Moderator: Ann Whiteside, Harvard Graduate School of Design

Speakers:

Ann Whiteside, Harvard GSD. "Digital Humanities and New Emerging Paradigms for Librarians"

David Sume, McGill University. "Exploring a book and its archival materials: blurring the boundaries between a digital facsimile and a comprehensive digital archive"

Allison Benedetti, SAHARA Project Director, Society of Architectural Historians,
and Jolene de Verges, MIT. "Collectivism, Collaboration and Curation: the SAHARA Model of Digital Humanities"

This session will explore the digital humanities in the disciplines of art and architectural history through three lenses. One lens will focus on the shifting roles of scholars and librarians in more general terms. The second lens will examine the development of the digital construction of facsimile books-- the impact on building collections and emerging technologies, and the idea of the art book. The third lens will look at the SAHARA project and successful collaborative work methods that result in shifting roles within a digital humanities project. Issues addressed in this session will include collection building, curatorial roles, and emerging technologies.

George Kapelos and Susan Patrick, Ryerson University. “Image & Text Experience: Special Collections in Libraries and Archives.” 

Chella Vaidyanathan, Johns Hopkins University. “Integrating Visual Literacy in Rare Books Sessions.”

Special Collections, including Rare Books, are a valuable source of visually interesting objects, and should be a natural match for students in arts, design, architecture, and other academic programs, however it is frequently the case that these collections get underutilized. This session will present three various approaches to incorporating the library’s special collections, including a an outreach project piloted at NCSU libraries that allowed for student interaction with rare materials, a case study of the utilization of the Ryerson University Library’s Canadian Architect Magazine photography archives for an undergraduate architecture course assignment, and the integration of rare books into IL sessions in order to promote visual literacy at John Hopkins University.

Sasha Suda, Art Gallery of Ontario. "The Evolving, and Essential, Role of Art Libraries in the Practice of Emerging Curators"

Ken Soehner, Metropolitan Museum of Art. "American art museum libraries: wishful thinking or strategic alignment"

With the accelerating pace of technological change and reoccurring economic crises, museum libraries and librarians are continually re-envisioning our processes, values, and objectives. This session will introduce the issues addressed at the Art Museum Libraries Symposia, investigate the positive outcomes of new technologies for curators, and interrogate the art library's position within its parent
institution and the ideals we (knowingly or unknowingly) hold on to. Change might be the only constant but through collaboration, embracing new technologies, and examining our presuppositions we can learn to navigate the changing horizon.

Collecting to Serve the Needs of the 21st Century Art Patron

Moderator: Amanda Bowen, Harvard University

Speakers:

Greg Albers, Hol Art Books.  "Art Publishers, Artists and E-Books".

Amy Ballmer, Graduate Center, City University of New York.  "Alternatives Indexes for Art and Artist Journals."

Ray Anne Lockard, University of Pittsburgh.  "Outside the Boundaries: Contemporary Art and Global Biennials."

Amanda Bowen, Harvard University.  "Speaking in Tongues: Foreign Language Collecting in Ivy League Art Libraries"

Art research these days involves taxing issues, locating appropriate materials in accessible formats and finding these in a local library.  Our speakers will present four ways that these needs can be addressed.  The visual art field has been one of the last to embrace electronic publishing, although our users increasingly expect such access; artists, museums and publishers have begun to expand these offerings in intriguing ways.  Access to small run and open access art journals is lacking and full text web searching leads to an overabundance of false results.  The Artist Journal Index, created by one of our speakers, provides a solution for access to these publications.  Documenting emerging art and artists requires collecting the catalogs of worldwide biennial exhibitions; we will discuss the challenges in identifying and acquiring these resources.  Finally, those art libraries that collect most heavily in foreign language art publications have found the need to pool resources and share collecting strategies to meet the needs of their patrons.

Information Design in a Digital World

Moderator: James Mason, University of Toronto

Speakers:

Mikael D. Kriz, St. Louis University. "Information Design for Library Websites"
Jutta Treviranus, OCAD University. "Hardly Anyone is Typical or Average: Designing for Diversity"
Adam Lauder, York University. Catalogue raisonnE as collaborative network"

Library collections are evolving, with digital representations of content becoming far more common. Library websites serve, for many, as the first access point to collections; therefore the design of these websites needs to be an essential consideration. A user base may, and likely will, reflect a large degree of variation, some presenting substantial challenges.  How can we present material in ways that limit barriers to access, while preserving, or enhancing the users' experience? What new methods can we develop to aid in the process? How can we use social web design and online collaborative tools, (wiki's for example)? This session will address these issues while exploring general web design principals, and applying them to a library context.

Speakers:

2012 Gerd Muesham winner: Katrina Windon, Masters student at the University of Texas at Austin, “The Right to Decay with Dignity: Documentation and the Negotiation between an Artist’s Sanction and the Cultural Interest”

Chosen with ArLiSNAP:

Heather Slania, National Museum of Women in the Arts, “Archiving the Contemporary Art Web: Considerations and Challenges”

Meredith Kahn, University of Michigan, “We’re All in This Together: Responses to the Crisis in Scholarly Communication”

Katie DeMarsh, IMLS Museums for America Grant, “A Modern Database for a Modern Collection: An Examination of the Art Cataloging Project at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery”

Returning for a sixth year, the New Voices panel provides new Art Librarianship and Visual Resources professionals the opportunity to present topics from exceptional coursework, such as a master’s thesis, or topics with which they are engaged early in their professional life. New professionals are defined as either students in MLS or Master’s programs leading to a career in librarianship or visual resources, or those 5 years post Master’s level study. For many, this is their first professional speaking engagement.

This panel was begun at the ARLIS/NA 2006 conference in Banff and has received wide attention and praise since. Topics presented reveal new ideas, as well as different ways of thinking about old problems, and give the conference attendees a glimpse of the academic interests and current discourses of the newest ARLIS/NA members. The New Voices session was organized by Jenna Rinalducci and Maggie Portis on behalf of the Professional Development Committee.  This year, one speaker is the 2012 Gerd Muesham award winner and additional speakers were chosen through cooperation with ArLiSNAP or Muesham committee finalists.

Today's photo archives are dynamic environments that employ creative and collaborative strategies to enhance collections development, outreach, and research capabilities.  This session will explore the recent activities of three photo archives.  Ryerson University has developed a facility and collections that will function as a center for the study and exhibition of lens-based media and will offer a vibrant new option to the city's cultural offerings.  The New York Art Resources Consortium found a way to unite the once disparate Frick Fine Art Reference Library Photoarchive Collection data into a single, shared environment. The Dumbarton Oaks Research Library used their digitization and research of the Nicholas Artamonoff collection for outreach and strategic communication.

Provoking Change: Creativity, Leadership and Planning for the Future

Moderator: Lindsay King, Yale University.

Speakers:

Shelley Archibald, Burlington Public Library, and Fiacre O’Duinn, Hamilton Public Library. "Thought Leadership in Librarianship: A Necessary Discussion".

Annette Haines, University of Michigan. "Get Your Creative Groove On, or How to Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the Backlog".

Ellen R. Urton, Kansas State University. "From Subject Librarian to Free Agent: How One Specialist Braved Reorganization".

Daniel Payne, OCAD University. "Place-ing the Library".

In keeping with the theme of this year’s conference, this session proposes new ways of thinking about our profession. How can we innovate and move beyond the traditional roles—whether in academia, in society, or in the individual workplace—of libraries and librarians? Shelley Archibald and Fiacre O’Duinn urge librarians to be “thought leaders” in society and use their influence on leaders and decision-makers beyond the library, based on strategies explored at the TEDx event they hosted in 2011. Annette Haines outlines ways of nurturing creativity in oneself and others, mining literature on workplace creativity and innovation for ideas that apply to art libraries.  Ellen R. Urton discusses her transition from Visual Arts Librarian to Visual Literacy Librarian as part of a reorganization that removed subject specialist roles but created opportunities for leadership and continuing collaboration with subject constituencies. Daniel Payne addresses library space planning via theories of what creates emotional engagement in a space, or a feeling of “place,” and asks how those with specialties in art and design can contribute to planning spaces that better serve our users’ needs.

Vincent Hui and Graham McCarthy, Ryerson University. “There's an App for That: Ubiquitous Computing Thinking Outside the Classroom”.

Lee Knuttila,York University. “Home(re)work(ed): the Pedagogical Potential of Memes, Mash-ups, and Remixes”.

Dan McClure, Pacific Northwest College of Art. “Mimi and Homeroom: Homegrown Educational Software Solutions at PNCA”.

Technology and social practice have important implications for how we can extend learning beyond the physical boundaries of the classroom. This session will bring together three unique perspectives on the rapidly changing learning environment. First, we will hear how mobile computing can bring the classroom into the “real world” for architecture students. Second, we will explore how remixes, mash-ups, and memes can enhance traditional teaching methods while allowing for new forms of student participation. Finally, we will learn how even small institutions can create their own innovative, open-source tools to satisfy a variety of local needs.

Curating in Context: Representing Cultural Significance in Library Exhibitions

Moderator: Allison Jai O'Dell, Free Public Library of Philadelphia

Speakers:

Arthur Smith, Royal Ontario Museum & Pearce J. Carefoote, Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library. "Diverse Cultural Voice: Issues of Cultural Sensitivity in Displaying Special Collections"

Steven Loft, Trudeau Visiting Fellow, Ryerson University Scholar-in-Residence, Ryerson Gallery and Research Centre. "Close Encounters: Curating Indigenous Art"

This session asks questions about cultural contexts in curatorial practice.  Drawing from examples at the Royal Ontario Museum and the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library, Smith and Carefoot will focus on the challenges presented to curators of exhibitions resulting from political, cultural, and religious considerations when choosing items for display from Special Collections.  They will illustrate how images from Special Collections can spark demonstrations and public outrage.  For instance, what does one do when a work of literature veers into the realm of pornography?  How does one critique images that represent domination and imperialism?  When is a photograph an accurate portrayal or a fabrication of history? 

 Steven Loft, speaking from an art historian's perspective, will discuss how Euro-Western art historical methodologies do not adequately contextualize, or realize, Indigenous artists' aesthetic and cultural imperatives.  He will delve into new, divergent, innovative, creative, and sometimes radical curatorial practices and scholarship.  Loft will explain how a wider discourse that includes critical, epistemological, and pedagogical concerns must be engaged in if there is to be an integration (not assimilation) of Indigenous art into the larger milieu.

Urban Mapwork: Art, Libraries, and the City

Moderator: Hannah Bennett, Princeton University.

Speakers:

Ruth Wallach, University of Southern California. “Collection building as a conduit for research”.

Leanne Hindmarch, Ontario Council of University Libraries/Marcel Fortin, University of Toronto. “Maps and Art: Map and GIS collections to support art research”.

Jesse Shapins, Harvard University.  “The city as Library”: mapping a media Aarchaeology of place through archives, databases and locative media”.

Ruth Wallach begins the discussion with her presentation regarding two levels at which our understanding of cities is affected.  At one level, popular comprehension of urban boundaries is altered by public art projects, which Wallach demonstrates by considering two cities, Los Angeles and Groningen, the Netherlands, and how each sought to define itself through specific art commissions.  At another level, by concentrating collection development on precisely such issues, Wallach explores ways in which libraries can become a foundation for targeted research serving a range of disciplines.

Leanne Hindmarch and Marcel Fortin continue this notion of interdisciplinarity with a chronology of the relationship between maps and artists and how that relationship has manifested itself in different forms or media over time, becoming its own concentration and challenge for the information professional.  They will share their experiences in working with studio artists who incorporate GIS and other geospatial technologies into their artwork, highlighting such work in the University of Toronto’s Digital Maps Collection.  Finally, Hindmarch and Fortin will situate the art librarian in the maps collection, offering ideas and tools to help them help others navigate map collections and related technologies. 

Such collaboration then veers into unexpected and exciting confluences in Jesse Shapins’s presentation on the field of media archaeology.  Specifically, Shapins theorizes how media archeology of place, that is, media of all forms and from all periods representing a city’s image, can synthesize and re-imagine a new and dynamic urban form.  This process hinges on the collaborative expertise of archivists, librarians, artists, and scholars, and is, as Shapins will show, quickly finding ground of its own within the larger digital humanities realm.  Drawing from such initiatives as Mapping Main Street or studio projects such as Mixed Reality City, Shapins demonstrates how this highly experimental field joins together traditional scholarly discourse and research methodologies with emerging digital technologies.

A Food and Drink Lover's Guide to Toronto” - a series of epicurean adventures throughout some of Toronto's best restaurants and bars.

Once the ARLIS Conference has wrapped up, intrepid conference-goers who are staying in town for Sunday night will be looking to head out and explore Toronto further. What better way to do so than to take in some of the city’s outstanding food and drink destinations, as we are an epicurean destination that does not need to take a back seat to any city! In order to showcase some of this variety, on Sunday, April 1, there will be a number of gatherings for conference-goers to let down their hair and relax. For those who are interested, there will be four options:

 

Caplansky’s

356 College Street

http://caplanskys.com/

 This has quickly become the go-to spot in Toronto to indulge in what is admittedly a Montreal specialty, but a Canadian passion – Montreal smoked meat sandwiches. Started as a take-out joint at the local institution, the Monarch Tavern, Caplansky’s now has its own location where diners can have a smoked meat sandwich or other specialities such as liver & onion and beef brisket. Intrepid souls could follow up a sandwich with a short walk to some outstanding nearby bars such as the Cloak and Dagger or Smokeless Joe.

Average Main: $12

 

C’est What?

67 Front Street East

http://www.cestwhat.com/

Until recently, Ontario lagged behind other areas in the craft-brewing renaissance in North America. No longer! C’est What has become something of an institution in Toronto as a mecca for Ontario craft brews, with 35 local-only taps at any given time, all showcasing the amazing variety and quality of our beers, ranging from the Amsterdam Boneshaker IPA to Beau’s Night-Marzen.

Average Main: $12

 

Le Select

432 Wellington Street West

http://www.leselect.com/

A long-standing Toronto favourite that indulges diners with a wonderful atmosphere and traditional French fare, including steak frites, cassoulet, and bouillabaisse, along with one of the city’s best wine lists. The restaurant is pure France, with a feeling of having walked in from downtown Toronto straight into the Montparnasse.

Average Main: $21

 

Terroni

57 Adelaide Avenue East

http://www.terroni.com

While there have been a number of excellent Italian restaurants focussing on pizza that have opened up in Toronto over the past few years, few live up to the long-established standard set by Terroni. It is a boisterous and casual affair, with fantastic antipasti, paninis, pasta, and yes, pizza.

Average Main: $16

Innovation occurs at the margins. Librarians as stewards of public knowledge have a commitment to serving the full community and an interest in engaging and enhancing the knowledge and interests of all community members. Design that encompasses the requirements of individuals with extraordinary challenges benefits everyone and pushes our thinking and practice further. This workshop will introduce participants to the theory and practice of inclusive design, or design that addresses the full range of human diversity with respect to ability, language, culture, gender, age, and other forms of human difference - to meet legislative obligations and to creatively address foundational responsibilities of librarianship.

This all-day excursion is a very special and unique opportunity to gain insight into Aboriginal art and culture. You will travel by motor coach to the Woodland Cultural Centre on the Six Nations Reserve in Brantford, southern Ontario. During the bus ride, a film by a First Nations artist will be screened.  

The WCC is a First Nations educational and cultural centre. It was established in 1972 to protect, promote, interpret, and present the history, language, intellect and cultural heritage of the Anishinaabe and Onkwehon:we. The complex includes a museum housing 35,000 artifacts, and a library situated in a former residential school for Aboriginal children, the only such controversial building still standing in the province of Ontario.

Your visit begins with a welcome, a guided tour of the museum and the library, followed by a catered lunch of traditional Native cuisine. Following lunch, two prominent contemporary artists, Shelley Niro and Tom Hill, will speak about their art and the issues facing them as artists of First Nations ancestry. Ms. Niro will then welcome you to her studio in downtown Brantford. 

The day will end with a stop to indulge your shopping pleasure at Iroqrafts which is known for traditional and ceremonial Iroquois arts and crafts.
