EMPATHIC TRADITIONS: NIAGARA'S INDIGENOUS LEGACY
The Niagara Falls Museums teamed up with Landscape of Nations 360⁰ to create an exciting new virtual exhibition that explores the Museums’ collections of Indigenous artifacts as curated through the perspective of Indigenous curators and their allies.
This Remembrance Day, Niagara Falls is commemorating those who protected our freedoms, with a little help from the global community, by coming together to create a beautiful art installation of poppies cascading over the Niagara Falls History Museum.
The Poppy Project is a collaborative community art project by the Niagara Falls History Museum in conjunction with Stick'N Needles, a Niagara Falls stitching guild. We reached out to the public and asked them to knit and crochet poppies to be included in a large-scale art installation. The response was overwhelming, with over 11,000 poppy donations coming from every province in Canada, twenty-five different states in the United States, as well as Denmark and New Zealand.
