It's been almost one year since the Ninety Bears Arts Collective came out of hibernation to reunite and create fun things together... officially.
Our first big project was for Pride Week 2015 in Edmonton. Through Green Window City, artists were paired with businesses on Whyte Avenue to create their window display for Pride Week using reused materials. Our collective was paired with The Silk Road, a store that sells spices. We ended up using turmeric, grass, beets, blackberries, and some other spices to naturally dye fabric scraps and canvases the colors of the rainbow. With the dyed fabric we made fabric plants in each color. Check out these photos of each of them (excluding the violet plant). They were photographed by fellow Ninety Bear, Hannah.
Below are photos that I took of the installation of the plants in their shop front.
This was so much fun to create together, and a great way to make a first step into the Edmonton arts community as a collective.
