Capilano Universe — Encounters with Public Art: Self, Place, and Education;

Inherently situated in conversation with its location, public art invites dialogue about the histories and the places we live. This presentation is animated by a public on-line exhibit at the North Shore Museum and Archives depicting projects by CapU’s early childhood students shaped as an aesthetic-political inquiry with public art in the city of North Vancouver or abroad.
