February 2015 Newsletter

Hi all Friends of Kingston Inner Harbour,

Four quick winter items and one correction:
Wellingtonx Meeting, PowerPoint, Froid’Art, possible skating on the river + Bailey Broom correction.

1) Wellingtonx Meeting: Monday, Feb 2 at The Box, H’Art Studios, 237 Wellington St: 7 pm. This organization is dedicated to blocking the proposed Wellington Street Extension.www.wellingtonx.wordpress.com.

Learn where the discussion stands at the moment following recent meetings with Mayor Bryan Paterson and councillors and offer suggestions about how to proceed.

2) PowerPoint presentation for the Downtown Business Improvement Association:  Thanks to Aaron Forsythe, Primrose Craig and Harley Brushey for starting work on this project that will highlight the work of participating artists from last year’s ON THE WALL street art festival.  Hoping some downtown businesses might decide to hire ON THE WALL artists to decorate some city businesses!
.
3) Froid’Art:  One of the emerging artists from ON THE WALL, David Dossett, has made a huge splash this winter with his Froid’Art project.  Participating artists have painted on blocks of ice that are placed all over the City.  Congrats David!  Twitter handle: @FroidArtKTown  Facebook: https://facebook.com/FroidArtKTown

4) Skating on the River David McDonald may be shoveling the snow off for a rink on the river at Doug Fluhrer Park given that snow has covered the ice and it’s not so good for free skating anymore.  Check it out now and again on weekends. Thanks so much David.  Also, if you haven’t seen the magical video of skating at Breakwater Park last weekend, have a look.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pvu5IkLwJcg&feature=youtu.be

5) Bailey Broom Correction:  Paul MacLatchey from the City of Kingston has informed me that there is indeed environmental clean-up required at the Bailey Broom Co.  Apologies for my mistake on this file in the previous update.

Happy February,
Mary
