Millennium Library July Exhibit

Jennifer Sanderson

Jennifer Sanderson is a Métis artist with a creative passion that acts as a healing force in her life. While completing her Bachelor of Science degree she used acrylic painting as a way to balance the rigidity of rules and logic with the freedom of creative expression. This colourful abstract exhibit is inspired by nature, light and local Aboriginal artists, but especially the gorgeous skies and the sense of wonder and joy they incite.

Aboriginal Reading-in-the-Round

Millennium Library
251 Donald Street Reading in the Round

Looking for a comfy and welcoming space?

Check out the Aboriginal Reading-in-the-Round space at the Millennium Library. This space is great for hanging out with the family and it is also where a collection of Aboriginal Resources materials for children is kept (for Aboriginal Resources for teens at Millennium Library visit the Teen Central space on the first floor).

Oshki Annishinabe Nigaaniwak funded the special ceiling-mounted art found in the Aboriginal Reading-in-the-Round, which was designed by First Nations interior designer Destiny Seymour.

Download the hand-out about the Aboriginal Reading-in-the-Round, its history and all about Aboriginal Resources Collections for children.

Artwork

Oshki Annishinabe Nigaaniwak also provided funding for art by First Nations artists at Millennium Library and St. John's Library.
