Public Art

TOTAL Aboriginal Interpretive Trail

In a community where outdoor activity is actively embraced, the opportunity to redevelop this 2km trail following alongside the Athabasca River to encompass two public art projects presented an opportunity to engage community members in an entirely new way for MacDonald Island Park. This showcase of the work of western Canadian Aboriginal artists, local artists and regional school children is unique in the Wood Buffalo region and a chance to celebrate the culture of our indigenous peoples as well as the creative pursuits of our residents. The Sacred Teachings Project provides an opportunity for visitors to learn about these guiding principles of Aboriginal culture while enjoying visual art representations from both emerging and established Aboriginal artists. The Miquwahkesis Project allows visitors to engage with an animal synonymous with the Wood Buffalo region in a novel way: through the eyes of local artists and children.
