Art of Creation

Join us at the UNB Art Centre for the opening of the exhibition Art of Creation on Friday, May 5 from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibition runs until June 16.

This exhibit showcases a joint project by McMaster University and UNB's Faculty of Kinesiology that takes an arts-based approach to public education as a means to promote a greater understanding of the importance of healthy choices before and during pregnancy. Art is a powerful tool that communicates complex concepts, fosters understanding and helps to empower change.

The UNB Art Centre (506-453-4623) is located at Memorial Hall, 9 Bailey Drive, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton. The galleries are open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and during special events. Admission is free to members of the public.
