"The Parade" Exhibition by Carolyn MeiliGuelph, Ontario
Visual Arts, Heritage — Behind-the-scenes
Carolyn Meili is the City of Guelph's 2017 Artist in Residence.
Carolyn's project, The Parade, explores how we create a sense of identity through objects and symbols.
With the help of Guelph’s residents, she has gathered a visual language of symbols over the course of the residency that represents our community. These symbols have informed the design and construction of wearable sculptures that will be fashioned into an art exhibition, organized in a static, frozen-in-time parade, inside City Hall over Culture Days weekend.
This activity is in English.
This activity is wheelchair accessible.

Guelph artist Carolyn Meili is the City of Guelph's 2017 Artist in Residence. In its fourth year, the Artist in Residence program engages the community in creative experiences and embeds artistic activity in a variety of public spaces. In a public call for entry earlier this year, artists were invited to submit proposals that considered Canada’s 150th birthday and the City’s 190th anniversary while encouraging reflection of Guelph’s collective history in a unifying way.
