For the month of April, the amazing works of public art in East Village will be highlighted through a series of interactive displays and programs!
Starting Friday, March 28 a group of local artists will begin painting a collaborative mural on the glass windows on the east side of the building. The outline of an urban c...ity scape will be drawn on the glass and each artist will fill in the buildings with how they interpret “revitalization” in East Village. The bottom of the mural will feature the Bow & Elbow Rivers, filled in using hand prints by a group of second grade children from the Calgary Arts Academy. Directed by the Calgary Arts Academy’s Artist in Residence, Carl White, the children will finish the mural on Friday, April 4 and take a tour of the impressive public art located within East Village.
Talented local artist Mandy Stobo, featured in McLean’s Magazine and creator of the “Scuba Nenshi” portrait which helped raise funds for Calgary Flood Relief, will be one of the many artists collaborating on the mural. Mandy will also participate in our Art in April by spending one weekend doing live paintings in the EVEC.
Thursday, April 10 at 7 PM
Our own resident photographer Mark Shannon, who has been capturing the communities revitalization since it’s onset in 2007, will be displaying his work on a digital frame that will loop images from the past 7 years. Mark will be taking a group of young urban photographers on an evening walking tour, where they will have the opportunity to capture images of Langevin Bridge, the St. Louis Hotel, RiverWalk and some of our famous artwork by Ron Moppett, Julian Opie and Light & Soul.
