2017: Confederation's 150th Celebration: Sir John A. MacDonald
In honour of Canada’s 150th celebration this year, we used an image of our first Prime Minister, Sir John A. MacDonald, from the ten dollar bill issued in 1969. All of us appreciated the artistry of that particular design and felt it would work well for us.
Then each of us chose a Canadian artist whose style we would use to render the image of Sir John. And THEN, as always, we each needed to translate that artist’s style into our own medium.
This resulted in a lot of variation between the pieces, and made it very creative as well as challenging.
On top of that, each of us had to get 150 into our piece somehow, in any form. See if you can spot the 150 in each work! Some are obvious, some are subtle. Is it the normal digits of 150, is it in Roman numerals, is it how many of the same thing appear in the piece?
