Monuments to Graffiti: A Workshop Unpacking Public Art

Alberta College of Art + Design (Illingworth Kerr Gallery on 3rd Floor) Calgary, Alberta

Visual Arts, Maker Culture — Talks and Discussion, Hands-On Activity

The Illingworth Kerr Gallery (IKG) is celebrating 60 years with an exhibition entitled Unpacking IKG: 60 Years a Gallery and this is a workshop in conjunction.

Public art appears in many forms, from easily recognizable monuments to more challenging approaches such as graffiti. This easy-to-follow workshop enables you to readily understand multiple forms of artistic practice, focusing on historical and contemporary public art. The program structure incorporates topical examples of public art from Calgary and beyond, including a user-friendly worksheet and walking tour of selected public artworks on campus. By the end of the session you will have a stronger understanding of how and why public art is created, enabling a more informed basis from which to critique public art.
