‘Populace’ was an outdoor public art installation on the grounds of the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa marking Canada’s sesquicentennial. This project by the Ottawa Guild of Potters and 2017 members of the community was directed by Kirstin Davidson (Coördinator), Kim Lulashnyk (Outreach and Communications) and Hilde Lambrechts (Designer). A total of 9000 ceramic feathers, fleurs de lys, and roses, of which 150 of each with gold lustre rim, recognized the Indigenous, the French/Francophones and the British/Anglophones peoples at the time of Confederation.
