Three fine arts student projects were selected last week as finalists in the Legado Public Art Competition.
Seven teams of fine arts students presented designs for a new public art installation on the site of the Legado urban redevelopment project in Griffintown. They pitched to a jury of Concordians and industry leaders, including Natalie Voland, the president of Gestion Immobilière Quo Vadis, who launched the competition last Spring in collaboration with Concordia’s Faculty of Fine Arts.
“It was a very difficult choice. Every single team worked very hard. I can say that today, I am an extremely happy person, because all of you got what we were trying to do. It’s a real honour that we get to do the first university-led project with Concordia,” said Voland, in announcing the finalists.
