The opening reception for The Steel Spirit took place Thursday night in the Barrie City Hall rotunda, a special exhibit to run throughout the month of October that aims to shed a light on the non-professional artwork of military members, first responders and health-care providers.
All throughout the rotunda, the stories of the art and the artists behind it are on placards on the walls adjacent to the art, and the stories are diverse.
“The Steel Spirit is a business, but also a social enterprise, intended to give back to the community in that sense,” says Barbara Brown, who is in her second year of organizing the annual exhibit.
“It’s kind of a platform of recognition and thanks for all the service they do,” says Brown.
The Steel Spirit will be featured in the Barrie City Hall Rotunda for the month of October.
