PineRidge Arts Council is holding a Durham wide - Snap a Selfie with Sculpture contest on Instagram #sculpturesofdurham . We are encouraging people to get out of the house, have some fun in Durham, and take selfies with some or all of the over 70 outdoor public works of art in their neighbourhood. From simply visiting a local sculpture for the first time, to planning a grand tour to see all, the timing and choice of locations are open. In COVID times, this is a safe way to set an outdoor goal, socially distance and "see" the pieces that have been placed for our enjoyment. Some players might like to follow a sculptor's work throughout Durham and some may want to hold a competition with family and friends..

Archivist, Jennifer Weymark, explains how the Oshawa Museum learned about one of the first Black families in Oshawa.
This lecture traces the lives of one of Oshawa’s first Black families. We follow the matriarch Wealthy as she travels from Vermont to Lower Canada and finally Upper Canada. Four generations of this family, living everyday lives, have exposed the biases and prejudice of the time, but also the strength and courage of conviction they had.
