Everyday from Jul 15, 2020 - Sep 26, 2020 at 10:00 am - 9:00 pm
For the first time ever, PARK (Promoting Artists | Redefining Kulture) is partnering with Destination Deerfoot City, a 1.1 million square foot outdoor shopping centre in the northeast to launch #YYCBlockParty, a 200-foot outdoor interactive art installation and patio space featuring work by local artists Leetia Lyons, Rachel Ziriada, and Mikhail Miller of NASARIMA, Rhys Farrell, and Sydonne Warren to bring this project to life. While COVID-19 continues to impact our daily lives, Block Party provides a vibrant, accessible, and safe community space where you can engage with outdoor public art and one another while socially distancing. The installation is lined by over 200 feet of pathway and walk space and will be accompanied by art adorned picnic tables, umbrellas, and benches that meet Alberta Health Guidelines for spacing and cleaning protocols. #YYCBlockParty officially launches on July 15 at the Food Lodge at Destination Deerfoot City Outdoor Shopping Centre.
