COVID-19 public art update

In response to public health measures implemented by Alberta Health Services and the Government of Alberta, The City of Calgary is postponing all in-person engagement events, including those related to the new direction of the public art program. Where possible, we will conduct online engagement in the interim.

We are still working through other upcoming programs and events such as the Alberta Public Art Network Conference this October. Updates will be provided on all future planned engagements and programs as they become available.
