From the earth we grow is a free sculpture garden located on the VAC grounds.

Couzyn van Heuvelen, Anna Binta Diallo, and Sandy Williams IV have been invited to present works in response to historically ignored histories within Canada's many diverse communities. Please note that the VAC building is closed on Mondays.
