Through art and artifacts, explore the official and unofficial signs and symbols that communicate our history, culture, and distinct national identity. “Our national identity is complex and nuanced,” says Dawn Owen, Curator at Guelph Museums. “And so too are the signifiers of our nationhood. From the iconic landscapes of the Group of Seven to our edible exports (beer, maple syrup, and poutine), from our national sports (lacrosse in summer and hockey in winter) to our historical figures and popular personalities, this exhibition is unapologetically Canadian!”
