The Sarjeant Company Design Project 2014

April 24, 2014 – May 18, 2014

The Sarjeant Co. Design Project
Reception: Thursday, May 1, 7:00 to 9:00 pm
Remarks: 7:30 pm
Location: Molson Community Gallery

In workshops led by regional artists Jacqueline Swanek and Kirsty Wilson, students from Collingwood Collegiate Institute, Midland Secondary School, Banting Memorial High School (Alliston) and St. Joseph’s Catholic High School (Barrie) have created unique monumental designs. In addition to this exhibition of their artwork, several of their designs have been transferred to the drums of Sarjeant concrete trucks as a public art project and travelling exhibition.

Eighty-two students from across Simcoe County participated in this project. Students were asked to create designs with a rotational composition and to consider images and text that would uniquely represent their school. The resulting exhibition displays their creative outcomes and varied approach to this design challenge.

The MacLaren Art Centre and the Sarjeant Co. would like to thank Scott Gibbons, Kim Dickson and Mike MacMillan who assisted with the selection of images. A special thanks to art teachers Rachel Evans, William Vancise, Steven Zago, Lorraine Leitch and Claudine Dussault and their students for participation in this project.
