2019 Heritage Week Exhibit
The Mission Community Archives and Ecole Mission Secondary School are celebrating the launch of Heritage Week (February 18th-24th) with the staging of a new exhibit >The Tie That Binds.
at the Mission Leisure Centre.
A celebration of inherited memory and student contemporary art, this special exhibit is on display from February 16th to the 22nd in the main foyer of the Leisure Centre. It features nine artworks created by grades 11 and 12 advanced placement art students from École Mission Secondary School taught by Kathy Baker.
Inspired by historic photographs of Mission dating from the early 1900s and stories preserved in the Community Archives, the students have created vivid works open to a wide range of interpretation and expression linking the past to the present.
The Mission Community Archives gratefully acknowledges the dedication of Kathy Baker and the student artists involved: Hunter Donohue (Grade 12), Emma Johnston (Grade 12), Cassie Haskins (Grade 11), Cody LeBlanc (Grade 12), Sara Matik (Grade 11), Robyn Moore (Grade 12), Jamie Wallman (Grade 12), Sisy-SzeMan Wong (Grade 12), and Olivia Vander Wyk (Grade 11),
A special thanks to Stephanie Key, the Deputy Director of Parks, Recreation & Culture for the District of Mission, who arranged for the display space in the Leisure Centre, allowing talented young artists in our community to publicly exhibit their work.
