Talk and trail walk with Mallory Tolcher on September 29

Explore the Silvercreek and Eramosa River Trails throughout September and view #GuelphMovesMe, an outdoor art exhibition by Mallory Tolcher, the City’s 2019 Artist in Residence.

The exhibition features 12 hand-drawn portraits of Guelph residents getting physically active outdoors. A corresponding exhibition map includes the photos used as inspiration for the portraits along with a description of how Guelph moves them. The first six portraits will be installed at points along the Silvercreek and Eramosa River Trails from September 3-15. The next six will be installed between September 15–30.
