Celebrate Canadian spring with Mike Ford and Fresh art at Guelph Civic Museum

Guelph, Ont., April 17, 2016—Bilingual JUNO nominated artist, Mike Ford, performs a free Oh Canada concert at Guelph Civic Museum Friday, April 28 as local artists mark the opening of Wall of Art: Fresh.

Ford returns to Guelph, after co-starring, last summer with Moxy Früvous bandmate Murray Foster, in Sons of 17 at McCrae House. Ford was awarded The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012 for creating bilingual history-themed interactive arts experiences for Canadian youth. Through original song, humour, and a vast knowledge of Canadian history, he inspires interest in Canada’s past and encourages greater involvement in its present and future – in both official languages.

This Fourth Friday also marks the opening of Wall of Art: Fresh, a quarterly juried art show produced in partnership with Guelph Arts Council. Fresh features works by Helen Hughes, Kris Lewis, Vickie Lawrence, Erika Ross, Sylvia Galbraith, and Heather Nagel.

Admission to the Civic Museum on Fourth Fridays is free after 5 p.m. with the performance set to begin at 7 p.m.

Guelph Civic Museum is located at 52 Norfolk Street. For more information, visit guelphmuseums.wpengine.com.
