Pan Am Cauldron

Known for their fresh perspective on public art, STEPS and three of their artists Christiano De Araujo, Yshmael Cabana and Craig White, were commisioned by the TO2015 Pan Am/ParaPan Am Games to produce 30 unique art pieces for the Ceremonial Cauldron. Through facilitated conversations with community members about what makes them proud of their communities, STEPS transformed the information gathered into a visual representation of the 30 various groups represented on the Ceremonial Cauldron.
