Artist Jaime Angelopoulos uses these elements of colour, pattern and shape to explore emotions and social behaviours. Explore her solo exhibition Oblique Choreography in one our guided tours, led by Museum Education Officer Teresa Gregorio. Then try your hand at a craft – we’ll be making thaumatropes. You’ll have the opportunity to play with colour and the optical illusion of persistence of vision.


While on campus, head over to the atrium of Wilson Hall where McMaster University student and Museum docent and Janet Newbigging will be leading tours of Constructed Identities an exhibition of Persimmon Blackbridge’s art organized by The Socrates Project at McMaster University.
