Artist Aquil Virani creates Canada Day artwork at Canadian Museum of Immigration in Halifax.

As shown in the video, the museum flew Rebecca and I out to open the official two-week Canada’s Self Portrait exhibit. I asked people to complete the sentence “My Canada …” and re-wrote their responses onto the live painting. Similar to the Canada’s Self Portrait project, the participants gave a variety of answers, both positive and negative, celebratory and critical, English and French. (The painting is currently available for sale.)
