Here is your first round of Exhibition Projects, folks! Get inspired!

This week events include a “who” entry that tells you which lovely second year MMSt students have worked on the project.

From Coast to Coast / D'un océan à l'autre: Le français au Canada
Where: Wilson Lounge, New College, 40 Willcocks St.
When: Now until April 3rd
Who: Robyn Bosnyak, Kaetlen Bursey, and Katharine Snider Mcnair
What: Canada is not only the second largest country in the world, it is also the country with the largest number of native French speakers after France. From coast to coast, French occupies a prominent place in the linguistic landscape of Canada, perpetuating a language whose North American origins are nearly four centuries old. We invite you to discover the dynamic history and different dialects of Canadian French that have shaped contemporary Francophone communities across Canada.

The Shelley Peterson Student Art Exhibition
Where: UTAC, 15 King's College Circle
When: March 25th - April 12th
Who: Katie Funfgeld, Ellen Hlozan, Katherine Laite, Nicole Matityahu, and Kate Tyka
What: The Shelley Peterson Student Art Exhibition celebrates the work of undergraduate art students in the visual studies programs of the three University of Toronto campuses. The exhibition recognizes the achievements and excellence of these artists and demonstrates the importance of the visual studies programs in developing their work. The diversity of the artworks produced showcases the exceptional quality and breadth of artistic expression across the three campuses.

A Decade of Collecting: A Look into the Doris McCarthy Gallery Collection (Online Exhibit)
When: April 1st
Who: Lyne Allain and Bronwen Green
What: In celebration of its tenth anniversary, the Doris McCarthy Gallery will provide highlights from its permanent collection via an online project. The featured selection of 50 significant works of art by a variety of artists will demonstrate the breadth of media and subject matter in the DMG’s collection. 

Huzza for Freedom! Opening Event
Where: Parliament Interpretive Centre, 265 Front St. E.
When: April 2nd, 6:30PM (Exhibit runs until September)
Who: Keely Bland, Oriana Duinker, Kristie Nairn, and Hilary Walker
What: Huzza for Freedom! will show a selection of American and British cartoons that reflect the political climate during the War of 1812. The interpretive themes explore how political cartoons were used for spreading news, ridiculing and dehumanizing the enemy, and critiquing internal politics. Interacting with these images was a way for individuals from both nations to exercise their democratic freedoms, as cartoonists and viewers. The tradition of graphic satire continues to this day, and contemporary cartoons reflect upon how modern Canadians commemorate the War of 1812. 

Science in Colour! Exploring a History of Scientific Instruments at the University of Toronto Opening Event
Where: Third Floor, Victoria College, 73 Queen's Park Crescent
When: April 4th, 7PM-9PM (Runs until February 2015)
Who: Cheryl Copson, Alex McClintock, Ariel Pomerance, and Sarah Silvestri
What: “Science in Colour” shines light on the history of scientific study pertaining to colour at the University of Toronto. This exhibition brings together equipment and research from multiple disciplines to show how University of Toronto researchers have studied colour and the way we perceive it. The exhibit also explores how colour has been used as a tool to better understand our universe and illuminate the invisible in our world.
