Studio in the City 10

Studio in the City 10 enlivened a public alley creating a fun, inviting and unique space. Guided by a local street artist, participants worked to design, promote, document and animate a lower Lonsdale alley to make it a talk-about and instagrammable zone.

Studio in the City 9

The theme for Studio in the City 9 was The Art of Placemaking. Led once again by Creative Director, Sierra Tasi-Baker, young artists worked individually and in teams to create public art around the City. Projects included painting two pianos for the Pianos on the Streets program (Civic Plaza and Lonsdale Quay) and many projects which were installed at or near Lonsdale Quay such as a new mural, “Shadows”, the “Conversation Umbrella”, “Hydrology Reflected” and more! Look for them next time you are down at the Quay!


Studio in the City 8

Random Acts of Art was the theme of the 8th annual Studio in the City team.  Led by Creative Director, Sierra Tasi-Baker, teams of young artists created Random Acts of Art around the City.  These included painting the Piano in the Plaza, creating Rain Art in Civic Plaza and “Evolution”, A Claymation Short as well as many others!  These projects can be viewed in the videos below:

Studio in the City 7

MOMEN7UM was created by the 7th Annual Studio in the City team of young artists. Inspired to create an opportunity for youth and adults to interact, Studio in the City designed an interactive art piece to bring play back into our lives and community.

MOMEN7UM was brought to life by creating a transparent stand-up seesaw, filled with tubes of colourful liquid creating an added element of movement and vibrancy. MOMEN7UM can be found outside City Hall, come play!
