My leisurely Sunday stroll - Art at the Oval

A public Art project supported by private sponsors under guidance of the Trinidad Art Society located at the Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain.

The Queen's Park Oval wall has a face lift after it was painted white for the World Cup Cricket venue in 2006. The entire wall has been placed with large posters showcasing the who's who in local contemporary art. This is to spruce up the capital and give the public a look at art where they may have never seen it before. The vinyl posters are to be up until Carnival 2009.

What needs to be done to make this project benefiting.

1. The
Trinidad Art Society should include walking tours of the space open to the public by someone who is knowledgeable on the subject.
2. Target the community, schools, elder homes, disable people etc.
2. Invite artists to talk about their work.
3. Make it aware that high quality reproductions of the work are available.
4. Rotate this exhibition in other places including on the island of Tobago.
