There are many ways in which to engage with public art.
One of the best and most accessible methods is to see it firsthand, as you stroll along Wellington Street, and then to be surprised by the appearance of a public art space.
Have you ever wondered how public art exists in our city? How it is chosen, who the artist is, and what message is communicated by the creation of a public art space?
On Wednesday, October 14th, 2015, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. cj fleury, a Wakefield, Ontario visual artist, and someone who has worked with communities to create public art spaces presents New Eyes for Public Art, a workshop at Stittsville on the process of creating a public art space.
After attending this workshop, and the next time you are out walking, and see one of the many public art sculptures, you will know how and why that sculpture got there. It will be a little something to share with your walking companion!
