About the Exhibit:
How this landscape speaks to us
-what we see in the spaces, structures, and natural environment -
is as unique as each person who has lived, worked, or visited the Lakeshore Grounds.
The many elements of the grounds cannot be separated from each other, but ebb and flow to create an ongoing narrative.
The History & Legacy of this space, through the natural and built heritage that has made its mark on the landscape, defines the Lakeshore Grounds.
From the shores of Lake Ontario to the red brick cottages, stories are etched into the grounds -waiting to be interpreted by their viewers.
What we see in this Space & Place, how we interact with our surroundings, and how we re-create it shows the individuality of Experience & Memory.
Visitors were invited to explore these themes through the eyes of eighteen artists who had been drawn to the Lakeshore Grounds.
In Your Eyes represented the first Community Art Exhibit hosted by the Lakeshore Grounds Interpretive Centre and highlighted the rich talent in our community.
See also the In Your Hands past exhibit page. This was an "inspiration space" that featured historical photographs of the Lakeshore Grounds taken during different decades and provided visitors the supplies to create their own unique artwork.
