For the first time ever, PARK (Promoting Artists | Redefining Kulture) is partnering with Destination Deerfoot City, a 1.1 million square foot outdoor shopping centre in northeast Calgary, to launch #YYCBlockParty on July 15th — a 200-foot outdoor interactive art installation and patio space in collaboration with local artists: Leetia Lyons, Rachel Ziriada and Mikhail Miller of NASARIMA, Rhys Farrell, and Sydonne Warren to bring this project to life.
While, COVID-19 continues to impact our daily lives, Block Party provides a vibrant, accessible, and safe community space where Calgarians can engage with outdoor public art and one another while socially distancing. The installation is lined by over 200-feet of pathway and walk space and will be accompanied by art adorned picnic tables, umbrellas and benches that meet Alberta Health Guidelines for spacing and cleaning protocols.
Guests will be able “stay and play” by enjoying the many food vendors at Deerfoot City’s Food Lodge, outdoor shopping on The Boulevard and entertainment including outdoor lawn games, The Rec Room, iFly and more throughout the summer.
#YYCBlockParty will officially be launching to the public on July 15, 2020 at the Food Lodge at Destination Deerfoot City Outdoor Shopping Centre.
