Arts Commons Presents
Happenings 13 - Truckstop happenings
Friday, August 10, 2018 from 4:00pm – 8:00pm
Happenings at Arts Commons is an experimental art party filled with new exhibitions, installations, live performances, and musical projects. For the summer months, in addition to celebrating the work of our current visual art exhibitors, Arts Commons is putting the spotlight on Calgary’s own circus artists!
Inspired by the FREE presentations of Machine de Cirque’s Truckstop at 5:00pm and 8:00pm on Municipal Plaza (directly in front of City Hall), Happenings 13 will animate the block in front of our building with our own take on the big-top.
Sit back, listen, take part, and be tempted to run away with the circus!
WE ARE CELEBRATING THE FOLLOWING ARTISTS WHO ARE CURRENTLY EXHIBITING IN ARTS COMMONS GALLERIES:
Dana Buzzee (Ledge Gallery), Blake Chorley, Susanne Aaltonen, and Brittany Nickerson (Window Galleries), Treaty 7 Film Collective (Broadcast Lab), Lane Shordee (Lightbox Studio) and Tona Ohama (+15 Soundscape).
