The 13th Annual Adventure Passport celebrates Bruce County's 150th Anniversary!
All Adventure Passport Stops showcase Bruce County history and bonus experiences allow participants to experience past and present traditions.
As part of an ongoing series of events to celebrate this significant milestone, a specially commissioned art piece will be revealed September 27 at the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre, 33 Victoria St. N., Southampton. This display features the work of local artist, Don Dubois and is dedicated to the Explorers of Bruce County; past and present, and future.
"A Brush with the Past" created by local artist Don Dubois, features three large, uniquely shaped pots using clay dug from Colpoy’s Bay. The majestic urns provide a canvas for painted scenes of indigenous history, pioneer development and Bruce County’s diverse geography. Each pot rotates for the viewer to enjoy a 360° landscape. The winning submission was chosen through a rigorous three-tiered selection process organized by Bruce County’s 150th Committee.
