Project Update - October 2020
This child-friendly project is a collaboration between the Edmonton Arts Council, local artists, the Child Friendly Edmonton Initiative to involve children living in Edmonton in ways to use art to incorporate playful, child-friendly components within the Civic Precinct.
Two locations in the Civic Precinct will include public art pieces that encourage play. These pieces will be installed during the construction of 2 projects in this area.
1. East Gardens - east side of Churchill Square
2. Centennial Plaza - south of Stanley A. Milner Library
The final design for the permanent public child-friendly artwork explores the idea of connection through a set of 2 sculptures that evoke both nature and whimsical imagery. The sculptures complement each other and connect the 2 spaces. The installation as a whole is colourful, vibrant, joyful and has play elements to invite children to climb, balance, explore and imagine within the artwork.
