Kaleidoscope highlights new additions to the City of Ottawa Art Collection in 2018. Artworks are added to the Collection each year by way of a peer assessment process through purchase, donation and/or commission. This year, 56 artworks by 33 artists were purchased, eleven artworks were donated and one site-specific permanent public art commission was completed.

In 2018, the City of Ottawa Public Art Program undertook a pilot project in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action. An Indigenous Liaison was engaged to work with artists in the Algonquin, M├ętis and Inuit communities in an effort to encourage more applications by Indigenous artists. As a result, the City of Ottawa Art Collection saw a dramatic increase in applications from Indigenous artists and 30% of the artworks purchased in 2018 were by Indigenous artists.
