Share your input: shortlisted artists present proposals for art at Victoria Park
April 1, 2019 -
Five artists have been shortlisted for the Victoria Park public art project as part of the City of Kingston's Public Art Program. The five artists, who work in a diverse range of mediums and disciplines, will share their preliminary public art proposals with the community for input at an open house event on Saturday, April 13 from 1-4 p.m. at the Memorial Centre, 303 York St.
Residents are encouraged to attend the event to see the proposed themes and concepts. Residents will have the chance to meet the artists behind the proposals and offer their own thoughts and feedback.
"This event is a great opportunity for local residents to learn about public art and to talk about the proposals being considered for Victoria Park with the artists, the City and each other," says Danika Lochhead, manager, arts and sector development. "The newly redeveloped Victoria Park has always been a vibrant community hub with activity happening year-round and this public art project aims to enhance the park experience for users from the neighborhood and beyond."
Following the public open house, the artists will then consider the community feedback received and finalize their concepts. A public art jury comprised of Williamsville residents, artists and arts professionals will review the submissions in spring 2019 and select the artwork that will be installed in Victoria Park later this year.
