The Art Bus takes us on a trip to the Windermere Basin + Industrial Hamilton with Guest Speaker, Lynda Lukasic of Environment Hamilton followed by a tour of Witness: Edward Burtynsky currently on view at the Art Gallery of Hamilton.

Windermere Basin

The Hamilton Waterfront Trust with assistance from the City of Hamilton and other provincial and federal agencies facilitated the restoration and development of the lands surrounding Windermere Basin. The purpose of the development project was to conduct restoration of the local ecosystem and provide natural wildlife areas and parklands for passive recreational use. The project site consisted of approximately 25 hectares of reclaimed lands surrounding the Basin that were created as a result of extensive infilling that occurred from the 1950’s to the 1990’s.

In 2007 Windermere Basin was restored as an estuarine ecosystem, providing a sanctuary for wildlife and passive recreational use. With improved water quality and habitat regeneration, Windermere Basin is a ‘healed’ area; a source of community pride; a place where citizens and visitors can witness the ongoing regeneration of the area to a healthier environment.

Witness: Edward Burtynsky

Acclaimed Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky brings environmental issues to our attention through awe-inspiring and often abstract images that document industrial sites. The photographs are a reflection of our times, and show the complex effects that global manufacturing, and the demands of first world consumers have on the planet. From aerial views of oil fields in Nigeria, to salt pans in India, to Italian Carrara marble quarries and nickel tailings in Sudbury, his stunning large-format photographs made over the past three decades bear sublime witness to the reality of current environmental issues. This exhibition celebrates a recent gift of 76 photographs donated by the artist to the AGH; the largest donation he has made to a museum.
