Open Sky

Challenging western notions of the ‘imaginary Indian’ perpetuated by mass media stereotypes, her work re-articulates and re-visions Indigenous narratives, while striving to engage a contemporary intersection of memory and meaning. 

In 2001, Toronto Pearson commissioned the artwork, Open Sky. As Baird describes, “the images used in the mural—among them the eagle, constellations, earth and sky—are all eternal and specific, accessible to all human ages and origins.”
