What is the Phoenix Project?
- Well it started as the theme to a fundraising dance in support of the school after the Great Kingston Fire of 2013 shattered glass and scortched stone. Jazz was played, drink drunk and festive phoenix hats worn. It could have been just a good time had by all, but...
Reborn from it's ashes, the Phoenix has become an umbrella symbol for efforts to revitalize and rejuvenate the Kingston School of Art and Window Art Gallery. This Blog is part of the Phoenix Project.
These institutions are terribly important in the current environment that has the arts somewhat on the run. KSOA and WAG can become a major force in the cultural life of the city. They could even become a hub for local artists to display themselves to the world. It is one of notions being bandied about.
How can you help?
- There are still Phoenix Etchings available if a talisman of rebirth would suit your life. Seriously though take a course, go out and buy a work of art that was actually made by someone, volunteer, come and see what's on at the gallery. Sign up for our newsletter
