For as long as Evergreen has been an organization, art has been integrated into our work and the Brick Works site. We firmly believe art has a powerful, intrinsic ability to foster self-determination within communities, provide an accessible and democratic form of culture, and create new ways of engaging with the critical issues of our time.
The Evergreen Public Art Program engages visitors to the Brick Works site and surrounding ravine system through site-responsive projects, created by established and emerging contemporary artists. Artists are invited to activate underutilized sites, collaborate with Evergreen's programs, and to tell the stories of the surrounding area.
Though the public art at Evergreen Brick Works take many forms, all will challenge visitors to think critically, engage differently, and learn more about how we can shape the future of our cities.
