Water for Riley: Design Exhibit
Thursday, April 7th to Sunday, April 24th
Blank Page Studio
1221 B Kensington Road NW
A true community project, inspired by the need for access to drinking water for all comers, this exhibit showcases 21 innovative and playful designs from students from ACAD and SAIT for a much-needed, new public water fountain for Riley Park.
In May, these designs will be vetted: first by a community-based jury, then IBI, and the City - before one is chosen for further development and construction. For the first time in a century these neighbours — area businesses, local individuals, students and staff of Hillhurst Elementary School, and faculty and students of ACAD and SAIT and The Calgary Foundation — are working together on a shared project under the auspices of Hillhurst/Sunnyside Community Association.
All of us at TMC are proud to be part of this vision of providing accessible drinking water to any and all who enjoy Calgary's historic Riley Park.
