Celebrating Inner City Talent


From 2-18 December, the visual art of inner-city community members will be on display at City Hall in Edmonton. This exhibit showcases the talent of folks who flourish creatively even while under difficult circumstances. It may also make some more privileged people question why they aren’t able to draw anything better than a stick-man.

Please stay tuned to the blog for posts on different artists while the exhibit is on! And on head down to our municipal center of governance to see the free exhibit firsthand for yourself!
