STEPS Public Art
For 2023, STEPS Public Art is partnering with the City of Fort St. John, with the support of the Fort St. John Arts Council, to support the development of a new temporary public artwork that will be exhibited in our community.
Ovvian Castrillo Hill was selected as the CreateSpace Public Art Resident, which provides emerging or mid-career Black, Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit and Métis) and racialized artists with the skills, relationships and practical experiences needed to build and advance community-engaged public art practices. Over the next several months, Ovvian will work to bring a unique temporary public art piece to our community.
John Lambert was selected as the RECLAIM Public Art Resident, which supports mid-career artists in their pursuit of public art practices focusing on the use of upcycling art or construction materials in the creation of new work for exhibition. John will lead a small cohort of youth and young adults through completing a 3-dimensional temporary art installation featuring reclaimed and upcycled materials.
