ArtRide: BLUE Rapid Transit Line
August 25, 2022 @ 7:00 pm-8:30 pm| Free
This tour will start and end at Seel Station Park & Ride, near Furrows in the Land (The Wheel). The public artworks created for the BLUE Rapid Transit Line tell stories and evoke ideas around ecology and natural history, historic north-south trails, civic planning, and Indigenous land experiences and histories. Following the river, the people, and their interactions in this area over time, the artists weave and connect the meanings of routes in the Red River region and the neighbourhoods of Fort Garry. Artworks we will visit include:
Rooster Town Kettle & Fetching Water by Ian August
テンサイ (TENSAI) by Kelty McKinnon and Cindy Mochizuki
(Un)Still Life with Spoked Wheels by Warren Carther
Métis Land Use by Tiffany Shaw-Collinge
