Library Events – June, 2017

We had the following event in June, 2017:

Allison Bernard High School Students Art Exhibit Grand Opening Gala

Date: June 1, 2017
Location: Multiversity Learning Centre

The students from Allison Bernard High School proudly displayed their original artwork at the CBU Multiversity Learning Centre for an entire week, and were on hand to talk to the CBU community about their art at the Opening Gala on June 1st. The artwork that these students produced was breathtaking and diverse. Art teacher Ron Martin said that he set out to have his students represent themselves not only as Mi’kmaq people but also as teenagers. Martin said he believes the exhibit will inspire more students’ desire to express themselves — and their culture — through art. The large mural pictured above, which was a group effort on the part of the students, has been donated to the CBU Library and is now permanently on display in the entrance to the Library.
