The Legacy of Terry Fox and Colourwheels


Beginning this Thursday, two art exhibitions open in Port Coquitlam – “The Legacy of Terry Fox” and “Colourwheels.” They can be seen for free at the Leigh Square Community Arts Village and run until September 20th.

The Terry Legacy exhibit features all the t-shirts designed for the Terry Fox Run and other memorabilia including the t-shirt worn by Terry Fox during the Marathon to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Run. You can submit and share stories about the impact of the Run on your life. A special hand made quilt will be featured in the exhibit and auctioned to commemorate the Run’s milestone anniversary.

A concurrent exhibit in collaboration with Rick Hansen Wheels in Motion is “Colourwheels”, a celebration of the artistic expression and achievements of artists with spinal cord injuries. New works by Nirmala Hickey, Robin Hodgson, Art Jonkers, Olga Kalamkarova, Murray Siple and Marnie Smithies. Includes paintings, photography, mixed media and sculpture.

The artists and representatives from both Foundations will be on hand for a reception on Thurs, Aug. 26 at 6pm.
