John McKinnon

Carved in the Canadian Shield -- Four artists from three countries visited Haliburton for a three week sculpture symposium in 2017 in celebration of Dysart 150, Ontario 150, and Canada 150. Beginning with four blocks of limestone, each artist was tasked with creating a piece that reflected the theme of carving on the Canadian Shield. These sculptures are now located in the Haliburton Sculpture Forest, on the grounds of the Haliburton School of the Arts.
