Queen’s University in collaboration with STEPS Public Art are pleased to announce an exciting upcoming public art mural located on the Queen’s University Athletics and Recreation Centre (ARC) located at 284 Earl St, Kingston, ON. This large outdoor mural will be jointly commissioned by the student-led Queen’s University Advocacy Coalition and the Office of the Principal. STEPS is partnering with Queen’s University to help organize this two-stage public art competition.
Three artists have been shortlisted and invited to virtually present their ideas and concepts to the Queen’s University community. During this virtual information session, Queen’s University community members will learn about the proposed artwork and provide feedback on their initial design and vision to help inform the final artwork they will submit for community consultation.
Your feedback will provide input that can help shape the final designs that will be shared with the Queen’s community later in February for voting. Please register for the event and participate to hear more about this project and each artists’ vision for this important public art installation.
Charmaine is a visual artist based in Montreal with a playful practice that combines storytelling, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, performance, installation, and microactivism. Her work investigates how people perceive, create and maintain their notions of self through behaviour and visual cues and is an ever-shifting visual mashup of British, Trinidadian, and adopted Canadian cultural traditions.
Anna is an interdisciplinary visual artist whose work draws attention to human-environmental relationalities. Anna's paintings and sculptures are conversations on infrastructures and the spaces and places we inhabit.
Nuff works across new media, street art, and digital design. He is a founding member of mural collective MRLTM and new media collective Gathering.
