Louise Riley ‘hosts’ Water for Riley

Exciting news from Water for Riley’s partner
This Is My City Art Society (TMC)

Water for Riley is honoured to again be part of TMC city-wide festival from April 3 to 28, 2017. Sally Truss, a founding member of Water for Riley’s organizing committee, is curating all 21 amazing ACAD and SAIT student drinking fountain designs.

The exhibit will be installed at – appropriately – the Louise Riley Branch of the Calgary Public Library. Water for Riley is proud to continue Calgary’s longstanding connection to the Riley Family.

In 1910, Ezra Riley donated the land that became Riley Park. His daughter, Margaret Louise, was a children’s librarian and author. The Louise Riley Library is named for her.

The Louise Riley Branch is easily accessible from the Lions Park C-Train station and many Calgary Transit buses.

Here is the link to the TMC Festival 2017. Check it out.
