Experience the Power of Resilience: Hispanic Arts Society’s Sculptures on Display at Calgary Municipal Building

May 1, 2023

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Calgary, AB – The Hispanic Arts Society is excited to announce that the Resilience Art Project sculptures will be exhibited at the Calgary Municipal Building from today, May 1, to Friday, May 5. The sculptures will be on display at 800 Macleod Trail SE, Calgary, AB T2G 5E6, allowing the public to experience the transformative power of art.

 

The Resilience Art Project’s sculptures were unveiled on April 30, 2023, at the Telus Convention Centre in Calgary. Over 250 people attended the event, and it was a tremendous success. 

 

The Resilience Art Project brings together talented artists to express their unique perspectives and experiences, contributing to a larger message of resilience and hope. The international and local jurors have selected five visual artists – Alana Halliday, Autumn Whiteway, Jorge Antonio Fuentes, Layla Folkmann, and Michelle Ku – to paint the sculptures.

 

These travelling sculptures will take art to the public and communicate the message of resilience. The management team of the Hispanic Arts Society will be available from noon-1:00 pm to respond to any questions about the project.

 

“We’re thrilled to bring the Resilience Art Project sculptures to the Calgary Municipal Building and share this message of resilience with the community,” said Mariela Parra, Executive Director of the Hispanic Arts Society. “These sculptures are not only works of art but also serve as a reminder of the strength and perseverance of our visual arts community.”

 

In addition to the exhibit at the Municipal Building, the sculptures will be exhibited in different locations. The Society aims to unite the community through the arts, creating a space for expression, healing, and growth.
