Art Procession from Legacy Gallery to Access Health Centre

UVic_art_collections_logoMarch 21, 2012 – University of Victoria students will lead an art procession of works from the Legacy Gallery on Broad Street to the Access Health Centre on Johnson Street to kick off the second installment of art at the clinic. The installation includes landscape photographs, screen prints, drawings, and paintings by artists such as Courtney Milne, Torrie Groening and Roy Vickers from the University of Victoria Art Collection.

This two-year project began in 2011 by UVic History in Art professor Dr. Carolyn Butler-Palmer as an exercise in the development of art in community health and well-being. Dr. Butler-Palmer worked with more than 20 art history students, members of the Access Health Centre staff, and University Art Collection Staff to design an art installation for the clinic.

The Art Procession will leave the Legacy Gallery at 1 pm on Thursday, March 22nd, 2012, and will make its way up Yates to Douglas Street, then follow Douglas to Johnson St. Our destination is the Access Health Centre at 713 Johnson St., Victoria B.C., and our estimated time of arrival is 1:15 pm.
