Tim Rechner, Anya Tonkonogy, Nickelas (Smokey) Johnson & Pearl Rachinsky, Downtown Banner Project, 2011
Location: Jasper Ave from 102 ST to 109 ST
Look up to the banners along Jasper Avenue. They are a creative collaboration between a group of visual artists and poet Roland Pemberton, otherwise known as Cadence Weapon, an Edmonton rapper with multiple albums and an international following. His surprise appointment as Edmonton’s poet laureate in 2009 recognised rap’s role as the poetry of many 21st century North American youth.
