Calling AUArts alumni muralists! Will you be our first Vivid artist?
In celebration of our first year as Alberta University of the Arts, we are proud to introduce a new campus initiative, Vivid: The AUArts Alumni Anniversary Project. We are launching Vivid with a call for submissions to commission a mural by an AUArts graduate.
The mural will be located next to the AUArts stairs in the busy public corridor that connects AUArts and the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium to greater Calgary via the busy LRT line. As a centralized point of interest between two primary arts hubs in the city, the mural will be appreciated by many.
Alumni are part of the university’s history, vital to our future and can play a valuable role in student success. The inaugural Vivid artist will be asked to involve current students in the creation of the mural and give an Artist Talk about the work and their professional path since graduation.
Vivid 2020 is a pilot project that we are confident will be very successful and will lead to an ongoing tradition of alumni murals and installations on campus that will elevate the student experience, showcase our alumni and act as source of inspiration for emerging creatives.
