Calling all artists who have created a piece of artwork they feel represents their heritage or culture and the spirit of multiculturalism and/or the theme of “Unity in Diversity”!

The Museum of Dufferin (MoD), in partnership with the Dufferin County Multicultural Foundation, are proud to present “Unity in Diversity”, a juried art show hosted at the MoD.

About the Museum of Dufferin

The Museum of Dufferin collects and preserves the stories of the people, places and culture of Dufferin County — past and present — and shares them through engaging and inclusive experiences.

Nestled in the hills of Mulmur Township, the Museum of Dufferin (formerly the Dufferin County Museum & Archives) opened at its current location in 1994.

The Museum’s roots date to 1963 when the Dufferin County Historical Society established the Shelburne Pioneer Museum. The Museum’s artifact collection was officially donated to the County in 1988 and relocated to the current facility by 1994.
