The launch of ART EXPRESS’D / ART EXPRIMÉ is almost here! On June 9th, the three mobile art studios, along with artists Jessie Buchanan, Evin Collis, and Becky Thiessen, will be making their way across Canada, stopping in 16 communities. Launch events will be happening simultaneously across Canada:

  • 9am in Alert Bay, British Columbia – Alert Bay Visitor Center with Becky Thiessen
  • 10am in Inuvik, Northwest Territories – Midnight Sun Complex with Jessie Buchanan
  • 11am in Winnipeg, Manitoba – Parks Canada Place at The Forks National Historic Site
  • 1:30pm in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador – Eastern Edge Gallery with Evin Collis

Over the summer, the artists will travel across Canada, all coming back to Winnipeg, the heart of the country. In parallel with the three mobile art studios, there is a fourth container stationed at Parks Canada Place at The Forks National Historic Site. The art studio at The Forks will be hosting art-making workshops throughout the summer. Participate in the Canada 150 celebrations through expressive art-making activities in your community. See you there!
