Be Part of the Canadian Mosaic Project at Our Event!
In keeping with our dedication to supporting artists, we’re hosting a special event at our Winnipeg store on Saturday, August 12! We are excited to have photographer Tim Van Horn in our store from 11:00am-5:00pm to celebrate his Canadian Mosaic Project. This project is an artistic endeavour to create a mosaic out of portraits of Canadians from all over the country, in recognition of Canada’s 150th anniversary. Tim will be taking photographs of our customers for his project, and will also be creating a special mosaic just for NoMiNoU as well!
Everyone is welcome to drop by our store on August 12 and get a free portrait taken by Tim. Your photo will become part of our very own mosaic, and will also be incorporated into the Canadian Mosaic Project. If you own any NoMiNoU gear, be sure to wear it! We will be doing a draw for free products, and you get an entry for each pair of pants you own.
To add to the excitement, we will also be hosting two fashion shows at 12:00pm and 3:00pm to give you some ideas about how to style your NoMiNoU gear in unique ways (we aren’t just yoga leggings, after all!) In addition, there will be light refreshments, live musical entertainment and surprise in-store promotions throughout the day.
As a proudly inclusive brand, NoMiNoU strives to unite people around the world through art and culture. In fact, our company’s name stems from the phrase “No Me, No You” – a deliberate statement of our belief that we are all one in the universe. We love that just like us, there are artists out there like Tim Van Horn who are striving to connect us all into one big tapestry while still celebrating our unique individuality. Tim is on a mission to create a visual document that represents all of the different heritages that make up our country, and we hope you’ll drop by our store on August 12 to become part of the story!
As Tim says, “We live in a nation where all the World’s nationalities are coexisting with the common, unspoken value of cultural understanding. This mosaic will bridge the gap between us, uniting us for the very first time. What makes this photography project on Canada so special is that it’s from the heart.”
ABOUT TIM VAN HORN
At age five, Tim Van Horn had already taken his first photograph and had decided on a life path as a “cameraman”. Growing up and traveling around Canada within the Canadian military, Tim was hooked on movement, cultural experience change and wanted to create a lifetime journey as a photojournalist.
Tim’s vision has always been to create innovative visual documents that educate, enlighten and pay homage to the beauty and wonderment of life itself. The fact that Canada is such a culturally diverse country inspires Tim.
Currently, with the Canadian Mosaic Project, Tim sees himself as a creative foot soldier on his tour of duty for his people, for humanity, listening to, reflecting and studying life in everything and everyone around him. A mix of visual anthropology and a humanitarian mission, the Canadian Mosaic Project is executed with an open and exploring mind. Tim is armed with a camera in one hand and a grand vision to unite people in the other.
