Open Space partners once again with the City of Victoria for Commercial Alley's second installation, which features four new works by painter, performance artist, and poet Roy Green. The artist's series not only captures the spirit of some of the island's favourite winged cousins but also speaks to humanity's timeless preoccupation with flight and admiration of birds, evidenced throughout the histories of art, symbolism, and spirituality. Green's birds, iconic and indigenous to Vancouver Island, include the great blue heron, the pileated woodpecker, the rufous hummingbird, and the red-winged blackbird.

This workshop will take you behind the scenes and give you a chance to look closely and think deeply about an artifact or a specimen. At the workshop, you will be asked to pick either Human or Natural History. That choice will take you behind the scenes where you will choose an object from our collection as your inspiration. You will then be asked to make a creative response to that object. It could be anything you want from a poem to knitting. Materials will be provided and guidance will be available. All skill levels are welcome. Your creation may become part of our next Night Shift event "Creative Collections" on November 21st.
