The Tragically Hip

The fine art exhibit is coming off a 2 month run this summer in Muskoka where the paintings, sculptures and mixed media artworks were on display. The 17x JUNO Award winning band oversaw the artist selection process for the exhibition, ensuring that Canadian artists made up 75% of the roster which included representation from Indigenous and French Canadian creators. The creators of the pieces are not just from Canada but also the United States and Europe, showing the Canadian band’s reach and influence.

There will also be a chance to grab a limited edition print of each artwork in the 18-piece collection.
