Connect the Blocks is an experimental exhibit, bringing together individual’s creativity with other members of the Victoria community. Visitors are encouraged to fill in a block with a self-portrait, words to live by, or whatever inspires them! The blocks will be connected to others on a moveable mosaic to create a community based exhibit. The finished product, along with twenty-four pieces of art chosen from the Michael Williams Legacy Collection, will then go to hang permanently in The Cool Aid Community Health Centre in downtown Victoria.
