    Dates: May 28th - October 29th

    Seven guitar-makers, 7 iconic artists, 7 one-of-a-kind masterworks.

    Taking over the length of one of McMichael’s most honourable spaces, The Group of Seven Guitar Project will feature seven masterwork guitars. 

    Commissioned from seven world-renowned Canadian guitar makers in homage to a particular Group of Seven member and Tom Thomson, will be presented in the round, allowing viewers to walk around and explore the various landscapes in wood and inlay hosted by the musical instrument.

    Celebrating its 50th Anniversary, The McMichael Canadian Art Collection stands alone as the only publicly funded fine art gallery in the nation that focuses on Canadian art and the Indigenous art of our country, both historical and contemporary.
