Daniel Kolos says that our Centre for Creativity’s "Echoes of Ancient Egypt" ". . . exhibit will shed light on the imitative creativity inspired by ancient Egypt that many of us carry either consciously or unconsciously . . . .  Southern Ontario is as well represented as any part of the world in modern creativity that is influenced by ancient Egypt from handicrafts, paintings, poetry, jewelry, architecture to industrial design goods." (Kolos, 2005).

Free admission; reception with Middle East sweets to follow; students and public welcome (wheelchair accessible).
