The Edmonton Arts Council (EAC) and Pattison Outdoor Advertising present #YEGCANVAS 2017. This highly visible, high-profile transitory public art initiative turns the city of Edmonton into an urban gallery exhibiting works by Edmonton-area emerging, Indigenous, and multicultural artists, craftspeople, and artisans. #YEGCANVAS is an entry point for artists who have had little opportunity to participate in public art or exhibit in the Edmonton area.
