On June 12, the City will unveil its newest temporary public art installation in Kingston at a public launch event in the INVISTA Centre (1350 Gardiners Rd.) from 6pm to 7pm.
This is a free event and residents are invited to attend to view the installation and meet the artists.
Submissions from the public resulted in three local artists creating art for the atrium in the INVISTA Centre – a multi-purpose fitness and community centre in the city’s west end.
Danika Lochhead, manager, arts and sector development with the City, called the display a “true made-in-Kingston public art project featuring artwork by local artists,” adding that the project “is an important part of the City’s ongoing efforts to bring public art into all neighbourhoods of Kingston and to create opportunities for emerging and established artists to share their work more broadly and in different ways.”
The Invista Centre display will include a large-scale mural titled Waterway by Danielle Folkerts and six pillar wraps, including the Portals Series by Shannon Brown and The Toy Camera Series by Anna Soper.
