On display September 6 to October 27, 2018 in The Sunroom at Central Library, Crossroads: An Intersection in Time features works by Halifax Art Maps artists and artisans and explores their personal experiences and observations of "crossroads."
Often, crossroads become the centre of a community where people congregate. Halifax is a land and sea "crossroad." Crossroads may also be a critical juncture, turning point, or crisis when some important decision or choice must be made. Furthermore, folklore and mythology see crossroads as a place between 2 worlds or where spirits gather.
For this exhibition, Halifax Art Map challenged artists to explore, reconsider, and respond to the theme of crossroads.
