The Delhi Tobacco Museum & Heritage Centre features both permanent and temporary exhibits and displays.
Tuesday January 30 to Friday December 14, 2018
In this exhibit, we will explore the many portrayals of tobacco from farm to finished product, through different media and contexts. This exhibit will feature the work of local artists and their interpretation of tobacco from the agricultural point of view and we will also explore the many different advertising techniques of companies through their use of print media, accessories and even packaging. We will open a dialogue to discuss this controversial product from the many different vantage points of the tobacco industry through the years. Please join us as we engage audiences in this exhibit, Tobacco Art.
The Hooked Rug
Tuesday January 30 to Late Fall 2018
On display in 2018, we are pleased to welcome the Ontario Hooking Craft Guild for what will be two displays this year. The works that you will see in this exhibit will be in two parts with several participants contributing to the project. The first display is showing a range of different subject matter and technique. The second display, later this year, will be showing subject matter specifically pertaining to Tobacco Kilns and again, showing a range of technique.
