Community Room, WPL - Harper Branch
March 16 local artist Amy Ferrari will share her talents with the community to create portraits for the We Are Waterloo Portrait Project.Portraits will be displayed at the City of Waterloo Museum in January 2017 as part of our Canada 150 celebration.
Program descriptionThe City of Waterloo is embarking on a year-long community art project, entitled ''We Are Waterloo Portrait Project'', which aims to showcase the diversity of faces and talent of waterloo citizens. With the support of local artists, community members will be encouraged to create a portrait of themselves to be displayed as part of a large and curated installation that will feature the work, faces, and creations of the community.
Pieces will be scanned as part of the project with originals going back to their creator and with the City of Waterloo retaining rights to reproduce the work as a print for display purposes. By timing the exhibit in conjunction with Canada’s sesquicentennial, the project offers an opportunity for the community to celebrate its present as well as its past and future.
Public workshops and activities will be held throughout 2016, each hosted by different local artists. For dates and locations of the portrait workshops http://bit.ly/1lfB6La:
