Its Your City Project @ Find Your Spirit Festival
I was at the Find Your Spirit Festival August 20 to 21, 2010 at Harmony Square in downtown Brantford. The festival was put on by Brantford Arts Block and hosted an array of artists, performances, and installation artists.
The public was involved in painting a cityscape of canvases on Friday using their hands and spray bottles only as creative instruments to paint. Once dry I created identifying marks, such as windows, the fountain, the bridge, and the clock tower with paint. On Saturday finishing touches were added and the public was invited to name the project and touch the textured works. In the end I decided to go with the name "Its Your City". My desire is to do this project in many communities! Lets hope this dream can become a reality.
I was featured on the front page of the Brantford Expositor painting! Check it out here http://www.brantfordexpositor.ca/ArticleDisplay.aspx?archive=true&e=2724346
The piece is approx 7 feet wide by 5 feet tall. If you would like to purchase it, or have it hanging in your gallery, coffee shop, or office please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss these possibilities.
