The Adventures of Marge – New Wheels
Aurora High School
“Chloë enjoys taking a stance on social justice issues through her work as well as including covert elements that are personal to her.”
The Adventures of Marge – New Wheels will be screened during the opening reception and on our website for the duration of the exhibition.
As part of MCOYA 2023, the Aurora Cultural Centre is excited to invite artists Emily DiCarlo and Brandon Vickerd to deliver two in-person presentations geared towards our next generation of emerging artists.
