As part of art4place 2012 Creative Spaces temporary placemaking art activities I will be hosting an interactive free family day installation based event, to kick off this Spring school holidays. I'm inviting children and their parents to join me and write messages on bright pink heart shaped leaves that will be ceremoniously launched into the lagoon in Russell Park, Montville in celebration of love & unity.
Wanting to create a sea of giant lilly pads floating across the water, I sourced the largest bike tubes I could find and have inflated them as much as I could and lined the base with mesh.
Up to 13 inflatable tubes with zippy ties which worked a treat to secure the mesh in place!
Starting to write some messages on the leaves from folk to far away and want to participate. Your most welcome to leave your message here on my blog if you want to join in.
My sea of hearts "Love & Unity" Installation will take place in Russell Family Park, Montville on Wednesday 26 September, 2012 from 11am to 2pm - one of six individual temporary placemaking community art projects taking place along the Hinterland through September and October, 2012.
Proudly sponsored by the Sunshine Coast Council, community enterprise Hinterland Business Centre and businesses Coffey International and N-Carta Group - all art4place 2012 Creative Spaces placemaking art activities are free to the public and also complement Arts Connect Inc., Sunshine Coast Hinterland Open Studios program that takes place each weekend from 15 Sept until 7 Oct, 2012 which I am also participating in.
