    “Universal Sea” Art Installation – Student Services Building

    (peaceful music) My name is Resa Blatman. My art deals with issues surrounding climate change. So my inspiration for this project was nature.

    Confederation Park Art

    We are working on an art project for Confederation Park. And we are representing voices that were not heard in the creation of Canada.
