Great Hall – Haliburton School of Art + Design

In 2005, Gord Peteran created the “Red Doors” of the Haliburton School of Art + Design—the incredible grand entryway that is also a complex sculpture called “Vortex”.
In 2021, thanks to a generous donation from Barb Bolin, the Haliburton Sculpture Forest was able to commission Gord to create the sculpture “Passage”. Although it was installed in the summer of 2021, this is our first chance to have people gather.
Gord’s work is in public and private collections throughout North America.

Dr. Glenn Adamson, exhibition curator, Victoria & Albert Museum: "Toronto’s Gord Peteran has ... a border-crossing career, opening up the category of furniture to an unprecedented range of psychological and conceptual content.
