ArtStarts' inaugural exhibition, Person, Place or Thing? investigates living in the urban environment. Vancouver teachers and students worked with local artists to create a range of exciting art pieces that explores big issues in a playful way.
Highlights include a series of printed T-shirts investigating anti-war advocacy, which sprang from a Vancouver-based peace march; a menacing hand-felted umbrella installation exploring power, youth and their urban environment; and a series of delicate sculptures using objects that take a look at identity in relation to home, school and the city.
