Identity: Art Inspired by the Great Lakes features contemporary artwork that connects us with the Great Lakes, building on the earlier work of beloved landscape artists, capturing our imagination and illustrating how these waters are part of our identity.

The art in this exhibition is as varied as the changes that have washed over the Great Lakes. The artists have also included personal reflections with their paintings, photographs, sculpture, and social media, expanding on how the Great Lakes have inspired them. They show there is no single view of what the Great Lakes mean to us. That diversity is a fundamental part of our Ontario identity.
