Art Puzzle: Birds of a Feather

Print and assemble the puzzle pieces of Birds of a Feather, a public art piece by Caitlin Taguibao and Andrea Manica that aims to question what brings people together. Presenting the Canada goose in various colours, amid a stream of plants, flowers and growth, we think about the idea of flocking together despite our differences and how we can celebrate that Canadian quality of “singular plurality.”

Art Puzzle: Unity

Print and assemble the puzzle pieces of this playful, engaging, eye-catching and welcoming public art piece. Houses are the symbol of human beings and the pathways are the symbol of nature. All together, they represent unity and future life – singular plurality. This representation of Unity by Yasaman Mehrsa demonstrates that we are neither separated from each other nor from nature.
