The Maple Leaf Project: Now on Display at the Nepean Centrepointe Branch


On Wednesday July 11, 2018 the Nepean Centrepointe Branch welcomed ArtEast members for the ArtEast plaque installation ceremony to accompany the exhibition of the Maple Leaf project located in the entrance of the Nepean Centrepointe branch.  ArtEast is a non-profit association for visual arts.


ArtEast’s Maple Leaf project grew out of the City of Ottawa’s ‘Canada Naturally’ exhibit. ArtEast was invited to participate alongside with their own special Canada 150 piece, which became The Maple Leaf Project.  Thirty artists created this mosaic of artwork which depicts images of Canada in watercolor, photography, acrylic, oils and encaustic.


If you’re at NC, be sure to stop in and enjoy the magic of this work of art!
