Studio F Minus (Brad Hindson & Mitchell F. Chan), Still Life, 2014
Location: Parklet, North Side of MacEwan LRT Station
Brad Hindson and Mitchell F. Chan have earned numerous plaudits for their work from critics and media outlets as varied as The Toronto Star, The National Post, Boingboing.net, the Chicago Sun-Times, and Richard Florida’s Creativeclass.com. This interactive sculpture playfully takes on the stuffiness and insularity of “high” art, and provides a way for viewers to, quite literally, enter the realm of classical art.
