Highlighting the synergy between visual art and music, this exhibition will showcase the visual art practices of prominent Canadian recording artists. Commissioned by The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS), JUNO Award Winners will create works of visual art that celebrate the creative connection between these two disciplinary fields. In conjunction with the JUNO Awards which will be hosted in Ottawa in 2017, these works will be unveiled for the first time at the Ottawa Art Gallery Annex.
