In Full Bloom: Celebrating Canada 150

To celebrate 150 years of Canadian history, the Bata Shoe Museum's window is blooming with a banquet of provincial and territorial floral emblems of Canada. Created by students from the Department of Architectural Science at Ryerson University, this window installation celebrates the Canadian Landscape in a symphony of colorful blossoms Over 2000 three dimensionally printed shoes capture the transient beauty of patterns found in nature, inspired by the floral emblems, arranged from west to east coast, bloom together on this unique occasion.

As symbols of celebration and confederation, these flowers echo the places we've been, the stories we tell, and the connections we share with one another.
