New sidewalk art project coming to McKernan in August 2020!
Artwork by Caeley D'Souza
McKernan Rangoli Walk
The title and concept is inspired by Rangoli, an art form originating in the Indian subcontinent where patterns are created on the ground using materials such as flour, coloured sand or flower petals.
Look for the installation in these two locations, coming mid-August:
Alberta Butterflies will be located along 78th Avenue leading to McKernan Hall. Families are invited to colour in these works in any creative pattern they want using sidewalk chalk. Guess which silhouette belongs to which Alberta butterfly! The ten different varieties represented are featured in the images below.
McKernan Mandalas will be located in the Pocket Park along University Avenue and 112 St. These images are inspired by the popular colouring mandalas, only these will be 5’ wide! Relax and enjoy our community maintained Pocket Park as you colour in these works. Anyone, even adults are welcome to join in. Don’t forget to send us images if you complete a mandalas.
This project is brought to you by the McKernan Community League Social Committee, Agnieszka Matejko and Rekha Shepherd and sponsored by the City of Edmonton, Neighbourhood Funding Grant.
To keep this project COVID-19 safe, we won't hold a one day event but invite families to come any time for as long as rain doesn’t wash away the tempera and chalk-spray painted stencils.
Please send us images of your work so we can post them up on our community Facebook! Submit photos to Agnieszka Matejko, the Social Committee lead artist on this project: firstname.lastname@example.org
