As the towers of the Gordie Howe International Bridge begin rising on the shore of the Detroit River, so too are stunning original murals exemplifying the heritage and culture of the region.
The Canadian side showcases artwork produced by 4 artists from Walpole Island First Nation and Caldwell First Nation in Ontario. The subject matter of the artwork includes images of bears, eagles, hoop dancers, tobacco, sage, sweetgrass, and the Maple Leaf. These motifs represent integrity and determination, and recognize the traditions, beliefs and ceremonies practiced by ancestors of the land.
Moriyama & Teshima Architects is proud to be involved in the project, as the Architect of Record for the Canadian Port of Entry facilities.
