Council selects new pieces to add to the City’s Municipal Art Collection

October 9, 2020

Spruce Grove City Council has selected six new pieces to add to the City’s Municipal Art Collection, bringing the total collection to 241 original works of Alberta art.

The new pieces were acquired through the Allied Arts Council’s recently held annual Open Art Competition. They span a variety of mediums, including a paper collage, two paintings, two sculptures and one photograph:

“We are proud of the City’s long-standing tradition of supporting local arts and culture through the collection,” says Spruce Grove Mayor Stuart Houston, adding that artwork is chosen by City Council each year. “Not only does it represent the history of Spruce Grove and our residents, but it also captures our community’s story and is a wonderful opportunity to showcase many of our talented local artists and others across Alberta.”

They were added to the collection through a sponsorship with Reynolds Mirth Richards & Farmer LLP (RMRF), an Edmonton-based law firm.
