City of Calgary Recreation is hosting an interactive, accessible recreation resource fair called “Window to Accessible Recreation.” The event, hosted in conjunction with the Creative Aging Calgary Society’s “Art Happening” promotes creative arts expression that facilitates vibrant and positive living.
Calgary artist Jeff Nachtigall will facilitate the creation of a work of art on a 12’ X 14 ‘ canvas laid out on the Municipal Building Plaza, using a Mobile Painting Device which transforms the wheelchair into a giant paintbrush. This painting will be preserved as a REC 100 legacy piece and will be showcased at Southland Leisure Centre throughout 2012.
