For two weeks in January, 2018, we shared an art installation in a corner of Calgary’s Gerry Thomas Gallery, a rad little spot in the Beltline.
Our installation was part of something called BIG Studio - a collection of local art showcased in partnership with BIG Winter Classic, an annual Calgary music festival in the dead of winter.
We asked people to fill out postcards telling us what they love about their community and then rolled those ideas into an illustrated map of Calgary.
We ended up with over 140 postcards, which we think is dope as hell.
We threw a bunch of nearly blank postcards down on a table below the projection and invited people to write or draw us something they feel about their community. We were blown away by the response, it was hilarious and real.
