Most recognize Hill as being the first Indigenous art curator in Canada, but this exhibition will give the viewer the opportunity to see him as an artist. This will be the first time the public can view Hill’s personal collection of works displaying his craft in portraiture, landscape, and abstract painting. Visitors will learn about what inspired Hill’s artistic practice and will give you an understanding of Hill as an artist. The exhibition encourages a younger generation to become artists and to understand the connection between Hill’s art and that of the land and people at Six Nations of the Grand River.
Thomas Hill will also be inducted into Woodland Cultural Centre’s permanent exhibition, Indian Hall of Fame: Portraits from the Permanent Collection. The Hall of Fame recognizes and celebrates the cultural value, events, and contributions of local artists. It is a way to engage the local community in support of Haudenosaunee culture.
