All in the Same Boat

Sep. 28, 2017

​What does it mean to play? What makes public art…..public art?

Grade 5 and 6 students from Elbow Park School have explored these questions through their project “All in the Same Boat”.

Inspired by ideas and discussions from a group public art walk, “All in the Same Boat” is designed to be an interactive art installation that invited passers-by to pause, view, and play!

Focusing on using recycled materials students created prototypes, tested them, made modifications and tried again. They played with materials in their quest to create a weather resistant boat that floats. Their hope is that their works inspire others to play.
