“what are the stories we want to tell future generations?”
No. 3 Road Art Columns
A new exhibition of artworks by three Richmond-based artists is on display for six months on the No. 3 Road Art Columns located at Aberdeen and Lansdowne Canada Line Stations. For this exhibition, artists Jeni Chen, Paige Gratland and Megan Yung explored the question, “what are the stories we want to tell future generations?” resulting in works that reference inclusion of LGBTQ2S communities, cultural diversity and Richmond’s unique natural heritage.
The works are presented by the Richmond Public Art Program to showcase local visual artists and their artwork in outdoor public spaces. The series – presented in the large, backlit display cases at the base of three concrete columns supporting the Canada Line guide-way – are part of the City’s commitment to enhance the No. 3 Road streetscape, in partnership with InTransit BC. This is the second of a two-part year-long exhibition; the first exhibition presented artwork by artists Nadia Mahamoor, Ming Yeung and Valerie D. Walker.
Engaging Artists in the Community
Richmond Nature Park Artist Residency, The Interpreter Project
Richmond Nature Park
Those who visit the Richmond Nature Park are invited to slow down and focus on the silent wonders of nature. From May to October 2019, Wen Wen (Cherry) Lu, artist-in-residence, is presenting The Interpreter Project, a series of public events and workshops exploring the process of interpretation through stories, nature and culture.
Lu is particularly inspired by the newt, a native amphibious creature that is vulnerable because it cannot see or hear well. Taking the creature’s limitations as a form of wisdom.The Interpreter Project provides an opportunity for participants to explore the park through the senses.
The public is invited to meet the artist at the Richmond Nature Park, 11851 Westminster Highway. Find out more at www.theinterpreterproject.weebly.com.
