The CJS is proud to be a sponsor of the PUZZLE PROJECT Canada 2010.
The Puzzle Project is a unique art exhibit that originated from Osaka, Japan in 2006. It later expanded to London, UK and is now coming to Toronto, Canada. Over 60 select artists from Japan and Canada will create work on individual puzzle pieces, unaware of the contents of the other artists work. Once finished, the individual pieces will be put together to form one final puzzle, representing the concept of "Fusion; exceeding the boundaries of nation, religion, and race with art." The Toronto edition will also feature the theme of "Your Movie Your Dream; Like a movie hero, believe in your dream and you can make it happen”. The final puzzle will be an exploration of the interplay of the different artists interpretation of the themes, with their individual styles and vision coming together to create a dramatic representation of the concept.
