Grow Regina has the unique pleasure of working with renowned local artist Victor Cicansky who designed the two sculptures that frame the Queen Street entrance to the garden. They were installed August 2010.
Grow Regina in partnership with the Mackenze Art Gallery hosted 2 evenings in August 2019 to celebrate art in the garden as a part of the Gallery’s Victor Cicansky Retrospective: The Gardeners’s Universe
The amazing folk art work on the shed was painted by the Grow Regina community which will grace our garden for years to come.
Victor Cicansky talked about how gardens inspire his work
Vincent Murphy gave us a storytelling performance from an old time gardener and we also enjoyed garden sketching with artist Madeleine Greenway.
The Cicansky Gazebo project
Victor Cicansky designed a beautiful piece of functional art to be the centre piece of our garden. Developing this project and fundraising to have this Gazebo installed has been the work of many over the past years.
In July 2018 we were officially awarded a Co-op Community Spaces grant for $90,000 towards our Gazebo.
Fundraising continues – If you would like to know more, have ideas or want to help out Contact us.
