Today I hung some work at our local Good Earth Café and had a lovely visit with my friend Koos de Jongh and Rocky View Publishing reporter Matt Durnan. As we were chatting, I mentioned yesterday's inspiration with Calgary's public art and have to say that Airdrie is certainly growing in that area.
My friend Koos has an installation titled 'The Collaboration Project' at the Chinook Fire Hall, the Main Street Project which was completed by over 1000 local artists & members of the community a few years ago, AIRdirondack Art Project chairs, there are Fortis Art Wraps on utility boxes all around town created through Awesome Airdrie's partnership with Fortis Alberta that features work by several regional artists and friends - Kathryn Zondag, Char Vanderhorst, Cheryl Todd-Shergold, Lori Presiloski, and Olivia McMurray, along with the annual Art-in-Motion project that features local artwork on bus passes, bronze sculptures at Monklands Soccer Park and in Williamstown, The Legacy Art Project titled 'Space and Time' outside City Hall and, of course, my Awesome Airdrie project, the painted traffic signal box...which still makes me happy every time I drive past it.
