Cool Local Project: The Fort Garry SK8 Park Art Wall

Designed by Spectrum Skateparks in 2008, the Fort Garry SK8 Park has been a hub of activity in its community.  The art wall feature has been recently completed, with the assistance of the art teacher at Vincent Massey Collegiate who kindly took on this part of the project along with some of her grade 11 students, creating the tiles last spring.  The art wall feature shapes a shared plaza space between the SK8 park and the new play structure area.  Student involvement has been significant, through the birth and the development of this park.

Design of the sandblasted art wall graphic was by Alvarro Pastorin, who interned with HTFC in April 2009, as a student from the Graphic Arts program at Red River College.
