School of Art students launch new outdoor art exhibition at FortWhyte Alive

December 8, 2021 — 

A new outdoor art exhibition launches at FortWhyte Alive.  

“In nature, we connect — with the land, with our history, and with each other”

Alive in the Woods: Art on the Trail features site-specific artworks by School of Art undergraduate and graduate students from the With the Land: Artists Outside course, one of the first university-level courses designed to be held almost entirely outdoors.

Students spent the fall term on-site at FortWhyte Alive, experiencing the changing seasons while participating in non-traditional research methods like walking, observation exercises, interacting with plants and animals, and resting in place.  Students have had the opportunity to consider and expand their artistic practices while spending time on/with the land, deepening a connection to place. 

Congratulations to all the artists in the exhibition! : 

  • Carolina Araneda 
  • Pani Bolbolabadi 
  • Madeleine Carlson 
  • Owen Dunnigan 
  • Alice Hamilton 
  • Omar 
  • Shanelle St. Hilaire 


The show runs until December 21, 2021.  

Download the exhibition map and find more information by visiting the FortWhyte Alive website.
