Hugh Garner Housing Co-op is the new home of Flightpath Installation!

Red Dress Productions is pleased to announce:

Flightpath Installation

Flightpath – a mosaic installation with 40+ components -- will be located to its new permanent home at Hugh Garner Housing Co-operative at 550 Ontario Street in April, following a 6-week installation at the St James Town Community Corner.

Look for Flightpath in Hugh Garner’s breezeway that intersects Winchester Park west and east, and the pedestrian paths between Fieldstone Housing Co-operative, Diane Franking Co-operative, Ernescliffe Not-Profit Housing Co-op Fudger House, and Winchester Public School.
We acknowledge all participants, funders, and community partners, and we especially thank Hugh Garner Housing Co-operative and its members at this time for providing a beautiful site for the artwork and for engaging in collaborative design of the installation.

As part of the Promise in the Park, Red Dress Productions has made art with more than 800+ people in the St James Town, Cabbagetown, and Winchester Park neighbourhoods since the start of this permanent and ephemeral public art project in 2014. We’ve brought arts workshops to E Fry Toronto, Dixon Hall, 55+ Group, St James Town Community Corner, Hugh Garner Housing Co-operative, Diane Frankling Co-op, Maggie's, Sherbourne Health Centre, Ernescliffe Not-Profit Housing Co-op, Supporting Our Youth, the St James Town Service Providers Network, Winchester Public School, and City of Toronto parks, and we’ve unveiled 4 new visual public artworks: Hatch – a 14' x 8' mosaic public artwork that engaged staff and students at Winchester Public School Birds of a Feather – a suite of 9 mosaics created with a group of Ernescliffe Non-Profit Housing Co-op members and staff – Cornerstone – a large pebble mosaic in Winchester Square Park, and Flightpath.
