WHAM is located in one of Waterford’s best known industrial landmarks “The Pickle Factory”. The museum exhibits the rich social, industrial, and agricultural history of the area through the use of interactive and engaging exhibits. Visitors can sort cucumbers for processing in the pickle factory or try their hand at milking our moo-seum cow, Bessie.
This newly mounted exhibition will bring together seven community created coats from across Canada for the very first time!
Land Steward’s Closet by Marguerite Laramand
Land Steward’s Closet is a collection of coats that are coats of nature. Each coat is a voice speaking for some part of the wider soil community. For our interests, the soil community may be divided into three parts, the topsoil, the plant layer and the animal layer which includes humanity. All three are interconnected and interdependent.
Visit our unusual closet to see the Soil First Coat, the Monarch Coats of Norfolk County, the Great Shadfly Coat from North Bay, the Forest Coat from Thunder Bay and the Woodland Caribou Coats from Edmonton.
