Killam Prize (2017)

These posters were commissioned by the Canada Council for the Arts, each one highlighting a 2017 Killam Prize award category at 17x22". What is that Killam Prize? In its own words, it's a way to “honour eminent Canadian scholars and scientists actively engaged in research, whether in industry, government agencies or universities.”  Included in my renumeration: my wife and I were allowed to attend the black tie reception at Rideau Hall, putting my the closest to the halls of Canadian power that I’ll ever be. These looked very strange next to the otherwise Victorian-era decor.
