LocoMotoArt at Tatlow Park project is supported by a small, but generous grant from the Kitsilano Neighbourhood House through the Neighbourhood Small Grants Greenest City Fund issued by the Vancouver Foundation, in response to the City of Vancouver’s community-led green initiatives mandate.
We had some terrific feedback:
People remarked how “magical” it was. This is a term that was also used during our Queen Elizabeth exhibition. Other comments are: “Wow!", “This is so interesting”, “Thank you!", “This is amazing!” and “Fantastic”.
Regarding reaction to Miles Thorogood’s sound installation:
- " I live in the neighbourhood … I would love to see this (sound installation) here permanently, you have done it right!"
- "I want to grab my sleeping bag and spend all night listening to the sound
- "Thanks for a great event!"
- “This is so great! The City should make this a permanent sound installation so that you get the feeling the wildlife is back here."
In response to Dave Leith’s work:
"It sounded like the ocean and was very organic in there and I didn't want to distract you even to say hello. I had a friend from sound design with me who also really liked it. I wish there could be longer festival for art that was there".
