W4R’s public display (of affection)

This is My City Festival going strong until April 27, 2017

Water for Riley (W4R) enjoys a long relationship with This is My City Art Society (TMC). Sally Truss, Executive Director of TMC, was at the first meeting that discussed W4R as a possibility. Sally organized and chaired the jury of experts who selected the winning drinking fountain design. Last year, before the jury made its decision, Sally arranged for the design display to be hung at Blank Page Studio.

All student designs again on display

Now, Sally has again included W4R in the 2017 TMC festival.

The 21 ACAD and SAIT student drinking fountain designs will be at the Louise Riley Branch, Calgary Public Library, for the duration of the TMC festival.

Please come to the festival and admire the students’ creativity.

W4R owes a lot to Sally, and thanks her sincerely as she departs from her TMC role to pursue her other and numerous projects.

W4R plans to keep Sally on the team. She’ll be part of the pitch, with Michelle Vincent and Michelle Lazo (the student designer), on 19 April as W4R presents its case to win audience votes.

Thanks Sally, for everything and for all you’ll continue to do with projects near to your heart.
