The works chosen by you are being unveiled soon! Brantford’s Grand Exhibit is a partnership between the City of Brantford and Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant, which features 12 to-scale reproductions from Glenhyrst’s permanent collection displayed throughout the City.
Brantford’s Grand Exhibit showcases a small piece of over 600 original works of art from Glenhyrst’s permanent collection. The twelve pieces selected for the Grand Exhibit were voted on by nearly 300 members of the community over the summer of 2019. The exhibit features works by: William Henry Clapp, Hortense Gordon, John Sloan Gordon, Jason McLean, Michael James Alec Snow, Doris Titus, George Thomson, Aidan Urquhart, Homer Watson, Jean Claude Whale, John Hicks Whale, and Robert Reginald Whale.
The project will be launching with a celebration event on Friday, November 15, 2019 starting at 10 a.m. in Victoria Park in downtown Brantford. Join us for opening remarks at 10 a.m., and enjoy a warm-up coffee break before you head out on optional downtown tours of the installation led by Glenhyrst staff.
