The New McMaster Automotive Resource Center (MARC) feature story in the latest McMaster Times Magazine

The new MARC building at McMaster Innovation Park is attracting a lot of attention in the automotive community. The latest edition of the McMaster Times features the new building and profiles the researchers and their teams who will be calling the MARC their home.

In the article Dr. Ali Emadi, the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Hybrid Powertrain and the Director of the McMaster Institute for Automotive Research and Technology (MacAUTO), speaks of the paradigm shift of the automotive and electric technology in comparison to information technology.

“If Alexander Graham Bell came back and looked at today’s information technology, he wouldn’t understand a thing because there have been so many paradigm shifts since his time. But Henry Ford and Thomas Edison? They’d recognize today’s internal combustion engines and electrical power industry. Our goal is to help bring about a comparable paradigm shift in these areas.”

AWP Reception a Great Success

Thursday evening, McMaster Innovation Park hosted a reception for their 11th Art in the Workplace exhibit. The night was a great success with a turnout of over 500 art lovers from the Hamilton community making it the largest AWP exhibit to date.

The exhibit, which will be on display from now until July 12th, features over 180 pieces of art from over 90 local artists as well as over 60 pieces from The City of Hamilton’s historic collection curated by Professor Alison McQueen of McMaster University’s Art History programs.

The event was highlighted by Mayor Bob Bratina’s special unveiling of a piece by legendary Hamilton pointillist John Sloan Gordon.

 

A fantastic musical ambiance was provided by the  Hamilton East Chamber Ensemble who played a great variety of classical music over the course of the evening.

AWP would like to thank all of the contributiong artists, sponsors, volunteers and attendees, without whom the evening would not have been possible.
