New Eyes for Public Art

New Program Residency Workshop English Seniors

Experience the how and why of creating large-scale art for public sites. cj fleury has created over 17 pieces of art integrated into public buildings and spaces and is presently working on Ottawa's new Light Rail Train Blair Station. Analyze a public place and imagine the potential of large-scale art to enhance the site and its social use. An introductory slide show leads to brainstorming. Participants will then choose a photo of a public space and hone their concept for an art piece by defining “scale” and identifying materials. Participants will learn to explore their ideas through different media. Using simple techniques, participants will create a small-scale model, with user-friendly tools and materials in a fun way. Participants will come away with a better understanding of, and appreciation for, large-scale public art.
