Katie Green's 'Bridge': Artist Talk & Walking Tour

Katie Green's 'Bridge': Artist Talk & Walking Tour

Join local artist Katie Green as she discusses her inspiration, process and final outcome of the latest temporary art installation along RiverWalk in East Village. Mix and mingle with the artist and project participants over light refreshments following the main program.

Advance registration is required – sign up at bridgearttour.eventbrite.ca

About Bridge:

Located on bridge abutments, sheds and public washrooms along RiverWalk, Katie Green’s artwork – entitled Bridge – is truly a representation of the East Village community, celebrating the people most connected to it, their stories, and the neighbourhood landscapes in which they unfold. In this installation, East Villagers explored empowerment through anonymity as they posed in various spaces around East Village, wearing masks they made in collaboration with the artist.

This temporary public art installation along RiverWalk is the fourth in CMLC’s Art in the Public Realm program. Like its predecessors, Bridge will be up for 36 months until the next call-out for local artists.

St. Louis Hotel Throwback Horse Racing

St. Louis Hotel Throwback Horse Racing

St. Louis Hotel (430 8 Ave SE)

Enjoy a Friday afternoon lunch of chicken and chips at the St. Louis Hotel, just like it was 1985 again.

For nearly two decades, until the early 2000s, St. Louis regular George Stephenson would frequent the local watering hole every Friday at noon with his friends and coworkers, successfully convincing everyone not to go back to work. They would play imaginary "horse races" – writing horse names on a napkin, each choosing a horse – and would then listen to George’s animated telling of the horse race, made up on the spot. The game eventually caught the next table’s attention, and the next, and the next, before finally engulfing the entire bar with George yelling out the race details through a microphone at the front.

Well Calgary, indoor horse racing is coming back so that you too can participate!

Brought to you by CMLC, Best of Calgary, Village Brewery and First Calgary Financial, join in each Friday throughout the summer for your very own vintage horse race experience in a historic Calgary landmark. The race will be hosted by Dave Kelly and feature guest announcers. Enjoy a couple of brews and a tasty meal of chicken and chips while you try your luck at races without leaving the city.

Proceeds of this event are in support of In the Lead which is a strengths-based leadership program for high school students that incorporates both mentoring and volunteering components.

St. Louis Hotel Throwback Horse Racing

St. Louis Hotel Throwback Horse Racing

St. Louis Hotel (430 8 Ave SE)

Enjoy a Friday afternoon lunch of chicken and chips at the St. Louis Hotel, just like it was 1985 again.

For nearly two decades, until the early 2000s, St. Louis regular George Stephenson would frequent the local watering hole every Friday at noon with his friends and coworkers, successfully convincing everyone not to go back to work. They would play imaginary "horse races" – writing horse names on a napkin, each choosing a horse – and would then listen to George’s animated telling of the horse race, made up on the spot. The game eventually caught the next table’s attention, and the next, and the next, before finally engulfing the entire bar with George yelling out the race details through a microphone at the front.

Well Calgary, indoor horse racing is coming back so that you too can participate!

Brought to you by CMLC, Best of Calgary, Village Brewery and First Calgary Financial, join in each Friday throughout the summer for your very own vintage horse race experience in a historic Calgary landmark. The race will be hosted by Dave Kelly and feature guest announcers. Enjoy a couple of brews and a tasty meal of chicken and chips while you try your luck at races without leaving the city.

Proceeds of this event are in support of In the Lead which is a strengths-based leadership program for high school students that incorporates both mentoring and volunteering components.
