The artwork of nine Ojibwe students at GC Huston Public School has been selected to be part of a new exhibit at the Legislative Assembly of Ontario.

From Saugeen First Nation, the nine students are part of an Anishnaabemowin (Native language) class at the Southampton School and used a variety of art techniques and materials. The artwork was inspired by Mshkokmii-kwe (Mother Earth).

The artwork, which will be on display at GC Huston until the end of the month, was submitted in October as part of a Youth Arts Program and will be on display from January to March 2020. Students and their parents have been invited to attend a reception celebrating their contribution in Toronto on February 19.
