MacGregor Park Art Club

The MacGregor Park Art Club was formed out of a 12 months Artist Residency for artist Kristen Fahrig in MacGregor Park. This residency saw the park through a year of arts programming which was completed at the end of the October 2006.

The Art Club meets on Saturday afternoons at the field house. We create art together that leads up to celebratory events in the park according to the natural cycle of the seasons and the plants, with the aims of nourishment, beautification and community involvement.

A solid group of artists have now developed a dynamic collaborative process through working together at the park. Our community connections strengthen as we make history together.
