AIRdirondack Project - step one


I have the privilege to participate in a very cool project! AirdrieLIFE magazine and the Airdrie Regional ARTS Society have teamed up to create the AIRdirondack Project.

Artists have been selected to paint full sized Adirondack chairs. Chairs, paint and brushes have been provided for us. With the finished products on display in various spots around town, the hope is that we foster a greater awareness of arts, culture and city heritage with this public art project.

Chairs will be on display from July 1st - September 30th, 2010. They will then be auctioned and the proceeds will go towards a future arts centre in Airdrie. You may even get to have a sneak peek of some chairs at the Empty Bowls Festival at Nose Creek Park on June 12, 2010!

I'd also like to thank the Airdrie Home Hardware for the prompt and awesome preparation of materials for this project! You made my job a lot easier.
