Gordon Neighbourhood House
The evening of Tuesday May 17th 2016 was the official launch of a public sculpture at the Gordon Neighbourhood House (West End of Vancouver) created by students in the Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory at the University of British Columbia. The event recognized the achievements of the students of VISA 401D, who designed and made the recently installed sculptural work, 1000 kinds of Wind, in the atrium of the building.
This community-based experiential learning project was made possible with the support from the Centre for Community Engaged Learning at the University of British Columbia and Gordon Neighbourhood House in collaboration with the Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory at the University of British Columbia.
I initiated and liaised with the community partner and fellow colleague and sculpture faculty member, Professor Richard Price. I aided in obtaining funds, both by the community partner and Centre for Community Engaged Learning, and acted as a juror and consultant on the project.
