Participating artists are still being confirmed but we're excited to be hosting a workshop this Tuesday, July 11th, 6pm-8:30pm which is free for anyone to attend that may be interested in learning more about this project ; especially other downtown businesses that may want a Rainworks installation near their business. We hope to install all the Rainworks creations by the end of July, weather permitting and we'll be talking all about it via social media.
Below is a quick video that sums up how our Rainworks project came to be and shows a bit of the process and final result, which was filmed by the amazing Dave Culligan as part of his 365 day long Love Letter to Nova Scotia:
Actually, we also want to just take a moment here and congratulate Nick Brunt on his rad cover he created for The Coast this week. YAY!
Ok....you still with us? We still have to tell you about the Barrington Street Bouquet! We got this idea from an article we read about an artist who brought beauty to trash cans around his city. You can read the article HERE We were so inspired by this idea that we approached the Ikebana Shop to see if they would help us bring this concept to life in one of our trash cans located on Barrington Street. We're excited to say that Miyako Ballesteros agreed to take on this daunting task to beautify the city -one trash can at a time. The street bouquet will bring an unexpected beauty to the city and transform the ordinary to extraordinary! This "living sculpture" will be in place for one week beginning on July 23rd!
