Off-site: September 26 – October 25, 2020
During the summer of 2020, nine Richmond youth were selected to take part in a 3-week art intensive held online and in local parks. Participants worked with lead artist facilitator Emily Neufeld, guest artists Holly Schmidt and Laara Cerman, and herbalist Lori Snyder on various art projects that explored their natural environment. Participants worked outdoors to develop drawing studies, collecting plant samples, creating sunprints, and taking photographs. The culmination of their studies led to the development of a panorama photograph for a public artwork, with each photograph printed into a lantern structure installed in the ponds at Minoru Park.
The public art installation will be available to view at Minoru Park from September 19 – October 25, 2020. Included in these pages are the students final photographs, and some samples of their art studies developed over the three weeks.
