Ariel said, "Stories are important for a community to understand, own and be enchanted with the place in which it lives and works. It is my intention with the Sidewalk Constellations project to create narratives which go some way to celebrate, record, archive and make accessible the contemporary mythologies."
Have a great day. How can you miss - you're in Winnipeg!
