The abandoned Nordstrom in Eaton Centre has gotten a beautiful transformation in a new immersive experience that celebrates Canadian culture. Canadian Chroma is an interactive experience that delights the senses. See, hear, and experience a multi-sensory look at Canada’s history, art, and landscapes. Best of all, it’s free to attend.
There are five different exhibits that are a part of the experience:
Colorful capsules allow guests to step inside a capsule, scan an item, and watch as the capsule is bathed in color and transfomed into an iconic Canadian landscape.
There’s a beautiful and artistic rendition of the Aurora Borealis that will stun guests, and is a highlight of the experience.
There’s an exhibit dedicated to how spectacularly vibrant each season is in Canada, and guests can experience them all in stunning detail.
In another exhibit, guests can be a part of a digital tapestry that connects the Canadian community. A “living guestbook” as they call it, lets guests tap the screen to select a thread colour and connect it on a globe.
Finally, the last exhibit to see is one dedicated to Indigenous art, where you can swipe several interactive screens to see a variety of different artworks by 7 different artists that are a part of the contemporary Indigenous art scene, including Mariah Meawasige, Kaya Joan, Aeden Corey, Joshua Steckley, Emily Kewageshig, Eliot White-Hill and Casey Koyczan.
The multi-sensory exhibit, Canadian Chroma is open every day during normal shopping hours at the Eaton Centre. The exhibit so far, will only be open for the fall season so don’t miss your chance!
