Edmonton’s first Park(ing) Day was a great success! Thank you to everyone who came out to view ten different temporary art installations, urban inventions, and performance spaces made out of parts of the avenue that every other day of the year are mere parking spaces.
Thank you, also, to our performers, artists, and interventionists who set the bar high for next year. Whether it was the confetti shower, a space filled with garbage collected from the neighbourhood, the Super Citizen Space, a chance to play fantastical mini-golf, croquet, take part in a silent rock concert, enjoy a tent and campfire, or to record a song live in person, the amount of imagination and creativity shown across the installations showed that art can exist in otherwise-unlikely places.
