CHINATOWNBLOSSOMS Community Art Project
The Ottawa School of Art will be partnering with the Chinatown BIA to revitalize and beautify this commercial district by conducting a large street public art project called Chinatown Blossoms. This project will add natural beauty through various art formats to this neighborhood that is short of green spaces. OSA instructor Dawn Dale will lead students in this project to create public works of art along the streetscape. Abandoned windows, window frames and doors will be transformed into mini-murals; themed after Chinatown’s motto: A multicultural village with an Asian flavour. Artists will represent Canadian and Asian symbols within their different styles of design and aesthetic. The course will guide the design and execution of each mural and mentor students during the process. Students will develop crucial skill sets, work within the structure of a commission setting as well as network with the community.
