Shining a Light on Calgary’s Coolest Neighbourhood
Welcome to #KensingtonBRIGHT – a bold, colourful and interactive large-scale temporary art installation series in the heart of Kensington, Calgary’s urban village.
The installation series is located outdoors at four Kensington locations – The Theodore Condos by Graywood Developments, Good Trade Coffee Company, Ridley's Cycle and Vine Styles – and was created by local artists in collaboration with PARK™ Production House and the Kensington Business Improvement Area (BIA).
These large-scale, vibrant vignettes will provide plenty of Instagram-worthy photo opportunities for you and your friends – come explore Kensington and experience the work of some of the city’s most talented creators!
A Very Bright Idea: #LiveTheodore
A stunning new condo development now selling and under construction on 10th Street NW, The Theodore will be not only Kensington’s tallest building, but also a true architectural landmark at the gateway to the community.
In fact, the #KensingtonBRIGHT installation at The Theodore was inspired by the building's distinct curved dichroic glass in vibrant, shifting colours, and the installation's 10 focal colours represent The Theodore's 10 stories.
In what has been a challenging year, Graywood sees the art installation at The Theodore an opportunity to give back to the community. By collaborating with PARK to feature #KensingtonBRIGHT on The Theodore’s construction hoarding, Graywood is proud to support something truly outside of the box – an initiative that gives Calgarians an opportunity to walk through the community and rediscover what makes Kensington so special.
Join Graywood in amplifying the work of local artists, and come experience The Theodore’s art installation for yourself. Find us just across the street from Kensington Safeway and the Sunnyside CTrain station.
