Art exhibitions are periodically commissioned to be featured in the Lieutenant Governor’s Suite.
Since the earliest times, our natural world has been a profound source for art makers. The power and majesty, the beauty and mystery, and most importantly the permanence of the natural landscape have often been a font of inspiration for artists. More recently, the changes and challenges we face in sustaining our ecology have become the subject and inspiration for a new generation of artists. Our increasing awareness and understanding of the dynamic ecologies that sustain us—social, economic, and natural—have driven a new engagement for artists across Canada and around the world. In parallel with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the artworks selected for Awakening track that transformation and testify to the power of art to open our minds and hearts to our full responsibility and our greatest potential.
