Library Events – March, 2017

We had the following event in March, 2017:

Thundermaker Multimedia Art Exhibit

Date: March 13 – 17, 2017

Location: Library

Alan Sylliboy’s immersive installation The Thundermaker is built around the recently discovered and translated Mi’kmaq legend, “The Stone Canoe,” in which the Thundermaker story is embedded. The installation begins with a circle of text panels illustrated with Syliboy’s drawings, and culminates with a tipi containing a projected animation film of the story. The animation was executed under the artist’s supervision by Nova Scotia Community College Digital Animation students. The CBU Library was fortunate enough to enjoy The Thundermaker Exhibit and a visit from the artist himself.
