Lake Ontario Portrait

Lake Ontario Portrait will bring together the community of Hamilton to share memories of Lake Ontario, conversations surrounding the liveliness of the lake, and our responsibilities towards it. Working together, we will create a wall-based sculpture that takes mud as its medium. Community members will be invited to bring a sample of mud from a location along the lake that is meaningful to them. The mud will then be place in clear prisms, along with nutrients that encourage microbial growth.
