The Justice Education Society of BC reports that 2011 will be a big year for the Art in the Court initiative.
Since 1995, Art in the Court has placed student artwork in the Robson Square Provincial Courthouse. To celebrate the Vancouver’s 125th anniversary, 34 pieces of art will form a collection entitled Art in the Court 2011: Envisioning the Past, Present and Future of Vancouver. According to the City of Vancouver, “youth from across Vancouver will be encouraged to reflect on ideas of community, and express their interpretations on the past, present and future of the city.” This year’s works will be unveiled in June.
Art in the Court is a joint partnership of the Justice Education Society, the Vancouver School Board, and Robson Square Provincial Courthouse. The City of Vancouver also supports this year’s project.
