The FortisAlberta art wraps are in their second year with five new artists’ works unveiled in early August.
Creative Airdrie teamed up with FortisAlberta to present local artworks on Airdrie switching cubicles in 2013 as part of FortisAlberta’s province wide campaign to deter graffiti. Airdrie was the only city to feature local art works, the remaining cubicles around the province featured stock imagery.
More than 60 designs were submitted to FortisAlberta staff who had the difficult task of choosing the top five designs. Each artist received a $100 honorarium and the glory of their artwork reproduced on a large outdoor scale.
The 2014 Artists are: Bev Kelly, Alice Lord, Cindy Pierce, Glen Collin and Robyn Cooper.
The 2013 artists are: Kathryn Zondag, Cheryl Todd Shergold, Char Vanderhorst, Olivia McMurray and Lori Presiloski
