The Rodman Art Institute of Niagara (RAIN), in partnership with the City of St. Catharines, has curated a public art exhibition to coincide with the renaming of Centennial Gardens as Richard Pierpoint Park. The exhibition features artists Brendan Fernandes, Tabitha Lewis, and Wayne Moore.
"In the last few challenging years during the pandemic, public parks have become vital sanctuaries. The timing of this renaming and commemoration aligns with a reopening of public life and a celebration of nature. In times of adversity, community-based practices such as communal storytelling and public art play an essential role in helping us envision and craft a brighter future." - Raven Spiratos, Curator
