While Niagara is known for its exquisite natural beauty and renowned food and wine scene, we are also home to a vibrant arts and music community in Niagara. There are many museums, galleries, theatres, and music venues that showcase the works of talented local artists and performers.

National Indigenous Peoples Day Exhibits

Now until August 31

The Niagara Falls History Museum celebrates National Indigenous Peoples Day with two new art installations. These pieces were created by Indigenous artists Tracey-Mae Chambers and Nadya Kwandibens.

#hopeandhealingcanada is a textile piece created by Tracey-Mae Chambers, a Métis-settler visual artist, and constructed using red wool, silk, and cotton yarn. She has created over 100 installations at residential school historical sites, museums, and art galleries since 2021 and aims to start a conversation about decolonization and reconciliation through her art.

The Red Chair Sessions created by Anishinaabe (Ojibwe) artist Nadya Kwandibens is a portrait series that focuses on the acknowledgment and reclamation of Indigenous lands and the revitalization of Indigenous languages.
