Annual Oppenheimer Park Community Art Show

September 13th – October 26th, 2019

 

ABOUT OPPENHEIMER PARK ART SHOW

The Oppenheimer Park Community Art Show began in 2008 in anticipation of the changes, challenges and loss in a pre-Olympic city. It presented an opportunity to recognize the existing neighbourhood and its residents who play important roles in creating community by drawing on their history despite challenges and struggles. Oppenheimer Park is one of the few green spaces in the area and one of the oldest surviving parks in the heart of the city. It is often referred to as the Backyard of the Downtown Eastside and is also one of the few inclusive spaces left for people who are homeless, or living without adequate and safe housing. The Park hosts many programs, festivals and special events, and is the busiest park, per capita, in the city. Oppenheimer Park is located in the Downtown Eastside, a resolute community who uphold a vision of the Park as a place for art, education, recreation, health and healing.
