Forced Adoptions Memorial ("The Space Between")Print Page Print this page

Commemorative public artwork "The Space Between" erected as a memorial to parents, adoptees and families who suffered loss through forced adoptions. It consists of a large block of polished granite that has been separated, signifying the split of one part from the other, and a nearby boulder where people can sit and contemplate.

It was created by the artists Deb Jones and Christine Cholewa. The project was directed by a steering committee that included community representation.
