Crossroads, Connections and Intersections

The Art In Public Places Committee has successfully completed the 2022-2023 public art project, Crossroads, Connections and Intersections, funded by the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario.  

The theme “crossroads, connections and intersections” draws on the City’s strategic location along the shores of Lakes Couchiching and Simcoe, at the heart of the four communities of Oro-Medonte, Ramara, Severn and Rama First Nation, connected via the Trent-Severn Waterway, Highways 11 and 12, and the Trans-Canada Trail to anywhere you want to go in Canada and beyond. These crossroads, connections, and intersections breathe life into the Orillia area. They bring together visitors and residents alike and are the very reason Orillia has been a gathering place for Indigenous peoples for more than 5000 years.

Printed copies of the map are available at the museum.
