Witness Blanket Art Exhibition
Thursday, April 2nd
The Witness Blanket is a powerful art installation created by master carver Carey Newman. It is a monument that recognizes the atrocities of the Indian Residential School era, honours the children and symbolizes ongoing reconciliation. This cedar-framed artwork, inspired by a woven blanket, includes hundreds of objects recovered from 77 communities across Canada where residential schools were located.
The Witness Blanket is currently undergoing conservation at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) in Winnipeg, after touring Canada for three years. Newman and the CMHR have partnered to create a reproduction of the Blanket for offer to additional venues, allowing its stories and messages to continue to be shared.
The exhibition takes place of the 4th floor of the Riddell Library and Learning Centre, Mount Royal University from March 9 to April 30, 2020.
