EXHIBIT: ‘ROUTE BLUE BUOY Project’ Opening Reception

January 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

- Free

Alex Fong Galleria Exhibition

Opening reception on Thursday, January 18th 6-8pm

Muralist & Studio ARTIST, Michelle Loughery -ROUTE BLUE BUOY Project is inspired by ancient hand to land art skills, that bridge cultures and people. The art-making experiential process, combined with environmental stewardship, is based on the Big Idea – Where did I come from? The art inspires dialogue and intergenerational storytelling. The “Diversity Mural Beads” engage community through creating public art out of rescued ocean buoys, and connecting our cultural diversity in celebration of artist collaboration.

Route Blue Buoys are a connection tool to explore ourselves, our diversity, the environment, and our communities. Artists are the speakers of the now, the painters of the visions and the hands lent to toil the stories of our lives. Engagement art is many hands coming together leaving artistic footprints behind.

Public Art Muralist

Michelle Loughery -For over 25 years, Michelle Loughery has created award winning art based legacy projects in British Columbia and Internationally.

Michelle’s artistic practices have had the ability to reach young people from within their community, build social infrastructure and a catalyst for infusing millions of dollars in programming and capital build funds into local economies while building regional, national and global and culturally diverse destination projects.

Projects that engage youth, elders and those who are not attached to the labour market nor skills learning environments; an engagement model that also provides essential skills, is inclusive and builds emotional intelligence; a vehicle that is the ladder and the bridge to entrepreneurship, support systems, higher education, trades, apprenticeships, jobs and the creative industry.
