This upcoming Welcome week, the University of Ottawa invites students, staff and community members to attend the official inauguration of a new public art commission entitled The Hand is a Mind is a Heart

Date: Tuesday September 4
Time: 10:30 am
Location: in front of the University Centre (UCU), south facing

Created by Laura Taler, a graduate of University of Ottawa’s Master of Fine Arts program, The Hand is a Mind is a Heart positions the body and its breadth of sensations as central to the acquisition and transmission of knowledge.  

Standing thirty-two feet tall by thirty-two feet wide, this public art installation was chosen amongst multiple content submissions responding to the theme “The Inner Workings of the Mind of a University of Ottawa Student”.

The installation will enrich the exterior of the University Centre by continuing the tradition of bringing art and culture to campus.  Join uOttawa President, Jacques Frémont and artist Laura Taler for the official inauguration of The Hand is a Mind is a Heart and be amongst the first to discover this new piece of art.
