If you are looking for something special to do this summer, come join us on the Art Trail.  The Art in Public Spaces Committee of the Arts Council~Haliburton Highlands is hosting an art trail, which is located in public venues throughout the Highlands.  The art trail showcases the amazing talent of our local artists.  Based on the theme of Renewal, the trail features artwork that evokes a sense of re-awakening in the Highlands, as we emerge from the isolation and restrictions of the Covid 19 pandemic.  Twenty-eight artists have been paired with host venues that are accessible to the public and are located throughout the Haliburton Highlands.  The Haliburton Sculpture Forest and the Downtown Haliburton Sculpture Exhibition are also participating.

Tour the beautiful Haliburton Highlands either virtually or in-person and visit the host venues along the trail.  Pick up a map guide brochure from any of the host venues, libraries, municipal offices or municipal welcome centres; or download the PocketSights app by clicking on the button below.

                   The show will open on July 1st and continue to October 15th.  Come join us on the Trail!
