Connextions: Mural by Leah Kwak
Continuing with the theme from summer 2021, the Town of Oakville invited a new group of artists to create temporary artwork for neighbourhood community centres responding to the theme of “Connextions”. Public art has an important role to play in building community, promoting dialogue and enriching our cultural landscape. Supporting Oakville’s Cultural Plan, this exhibition engages the community in relevant and new public art projects, and brings art and culture to more town facilities. This exhibition showcases temporary public artworks to build community spirit and reflect on the idea of reconnecting communities. The selected works will be launched to coincide with the beginning of the fall 2022 programming season, and celebrate Culture Days (September 23 – October 16). One artwork is sited at each recreation facility on a prominent window.
This event is free.
