This past year, we have faced some of the worst global crises the world has seen in recent times. Across the news, and social media, we have seen the darkness within people, but it has also brought the opportunity to highlight the good. The Lunar Lanterns aims to use arts and culture to serve as a reminder to be thankful and reflect on what family means to us.
In light of the current public health orders and provincial restrictions, The Lunar Lanterns of Indigenous Lights installation will be postponed until further notice. We are working to find a way to digitally present the works and hope to bring the physical installation to the community when it is safe to do so.
Due to technical challenges brought on by COVID-19 health measures in Ontario, we are sad to announce that the Lunar Lanterns of Indigenous Lights will not be able to continue as planned at the Varley Art Gallery of Markham. We are working with our partners to find a new time and venue when we can get together again, from a distance to view these beautiful pieces in person.
