Created by Max Streicher Buzz was a travelling art project that celebrated that most quintessential of Canadian critters: the mosquito. Throughout June 2013, “Buzz”, the giant 20ft inflatable mosquito, made surprise appearances at a number outdoor spaces throughout the Muskoka Parry Sound region leading up to its final stop at Nuit Blanche North in Huntsville on July 13, 2013. Thousands spotted where Buzz landed, and while they were there got their hands dirty: some of the stops featured artists leading activities in drumming and sculpting. A free, fun and family friendly work of art that showcases the beautiful land we live in and celebrates our connections to the wilds that surround us.
