Art in the workplace
Come to the Atrium@MIP to see the beautiful art displayed in our current Exhibit!
McMaster Innovation Park is transforming brownfields and warehouses into a premiere research park, building on McMaster University’s existing reputation as a research centre of excellence. The Atrium was the first of 3 buildings on site, with many more to come. The Park is situated on 37 acres in the west end of Hamilton just down the road from McMaster University. MIP is the place where visions are realized and ideas are transformed into commercial opportunities.
With Tenants like Innovation Factory, OCE, MILO and many others MIP is a hot spot of innovation and growth with in the City of Hamilton. The Atrium@MIP building itself boasts an award winning design, 180,000 square-foot, 4-level conference, office and laboratory facility and is home to the volunteer based Art in the Workplace program. Art in the Workplace was launched during the official grand opening of the Atrium@MIP building back in October 2009, with a small gathering of local artists who would display their creative talents in the corridors of the new facility. The program was an immediate hit with all of the Tenants and is often cited as one of the many benefits of working at MIP. Since then, artists, community residents and an expanding family of tenants have continued to enjoy the 3 times yearly art displays. One of the highlights of each exhibit is the Grand Opening Gala. This event gives the community and participating artists an opportunity to gather together to inspire one another and discuss the inspirations and creativity of each piece, often resulting in a sale of an exhibited piece.
Art in the Workplace is true to the Mission and Vision of McMaster Innovation Park to Co-Locate, Connect and Commercialize and is positioned to continue into the future as a foundational initiative of McMaster Innovation Park. It is our way of reaching out to the Artistic community of Hamilton and helping to inspire growth and development in the city.
