Public Art Project
Create your own unique Canada Day artwork using the natural elements of picturesque Rocky Point Park. Participants will have the use of our stencils to search for colourful textures to act as background patterns for their pictures. Use your cell phone to photograph the fleeting images which you can email back to us and submit to our upcoming online exhibition.
