George Reid House officially re-opens!

On September 26, OCAD U’s historic George Reid House officially re-opened following a dynamic renovation of the building.

Faculty, staff and guests gathered to celebrate and tour the refurbished building—as part of OCAD University’s larger, Creative City Campus revitalization project—and to view the new permanent artwork by Inuk artist Couzyn van Heuvelen. Longlisted this year for the Sobey Art Award, van Heuvelen explores Inuit culture and identity, new and old technologies, and personal narratives.

The celebratory event included remarks by Dr. Sara Diamond, Urban Elder Duke Redbird, Jaime Watt, Chair of the OCAD U Board of Governors and student representative Gabriel Rojas Hruska.
