Honouring This Land


Throughout the Centre, you’ll find artwork by artists from different cultural backgrounds and perspectives, including the mural “Mohawk: Meeting” seen above. The artist’s concept for the mural springs from the origin of the name “Toronto” (the Mohawk word for “a place of meeting”) and expresses his idea of the Convention Centre as a place of meeting and sharing. The artist, a Mohawk himself, was inspired by his Indigenous heritage to create a symbolic artwork based on the ancient petroglyphs seen on rock outcroppings throughout Ontario.
