"Urban Stationary" is a project where we put out a city-wide call for proposals targeted at local artists to create semi-permanent art installations for a Calgary Transit station in early August. These could be murals, installations and so on.
WHY IT'S AWESOME:
- We expose the work of local artists, and make them want to keep creating art in a city where they feel appreciated. We have a very open application process.
- The idea will bring life to public spaces. Public transit is an everyday part of life for many Calgarians - we want to bring an unexpected and exciting experience to an otherwise ordinary experience.
- Make Calgarians feel proud of their city and the talent that exists in it.
WHY WE ARE THE RIGHT TEAM TO DO IT:
- We love our city! And we know so many talented artists here - we want to see them succeed and help them substantiate Calgary as the Culture Capital of Canada in 2012.
- We are also super committed - we meet once a week with lots of work in between.
