“TheHand is a Mind is A heart”: a new public art commission created by Laura Taler, a graduate of University of Ottawa’s Master of Fine Arts program. This work of art positions the body, and its breadth of sensations, as central to the acquisition and transmission of knowledge.

Standing thirty-two 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”.

Join uOttawa President Jacque Frémont and Laura Taler for this inauguration.

Free admission. No registration required.
