Community and Public Review
Saturday April 13th, 2013, 2:30-4:00pm
Roundhouse Community Centre, Room B

The Artists Walking Home wayfinding team has been working with the content generated during the experiences, walks, and co-research which took place in Yaletown during 2012. Catherine, Carter, Sandy, Adrian, and Vicky are ready to present to our community collaborators the first phase of potential signage designs for our upcoming Autumn 2013 exhibition.

Please join us at the Roundhouse on Saturday April 13th at 2:30 in Room B where we will look at the series of maquettes being developed for the park intervention, ideas for the transit shelter poster public art piece, and our metal signage series. We look forward to seeing you again!

Essay by Vicky Kim

From early 2013, Catherine and four intern members, Sandy, Vicky, Adrian, and Carter, have been developing content for the bodies of work that will be presented at 221A Artist Run Centre on East Georgia St in Vancouver’s Chinatown during the upcoming exhibition in October and November 2013. Under Catherine’s supervision, each intern has initiated individual projects on the topic of wayfinding. In detail: Sandy’s focus has been on the series of maquettes being developed for a signage intervention in David Lam Park in June/13, while Adrian is developing a metal signage series - potentially for a public art piece for the Roundhouse site in 2014. In addition, I have been generating design concepts for transit shelter posters as a public art piece to be seen across Vancouver in the autumn of 2013.
