“These Booths Were Made for Talking” Outdoor Public Art Project Launches in Clifford
Clifford, March 10, 2020:
In an effort to create a more vibrant, intriguing downtown experience in Clifford and to celebrate local phone + communications heritage, the Clifford Connects Committee, in partnership with the Minto Cultural Roundtable, is embarking on a unique Public Art Project featuring Phone Booths! “These Booths Were Made for Talking” will see six artists adding their art and craftwork to a three dimensional metal telephone booth-like structure to create unique works of art. The base sculpture has been created by Minto’s very own Andy Pridham from “Weathered Design & Fabrication”. “These Booths Were Made for Talking” will be on display from June 2020 – October 2020.
“The success of the “Cool Cones” project in Harriston and the “Trendy Trains” project in Palmerston really inspired the Clifford Connects Committee to launch a unique to Clifford public art project”, said Manager of Economic Development Belinda Wick-Graham. “ ‘These Booths Were Made for Talking’ really does honour Clifford’s heritage but with a modern and eclectic spin. The artists are always surprising us with what they come up with and this project will be no different I’m sure”.
“These Booths Were Made for Talking” will be unveiled at the Clifford Street Celebration on June 6th and the public will be invited to vote on the “People’s Choice” phone booth from June 6th – September 25th at 12:00 pm. The winner will be announced at the Culture Days event in Clifford on September 26th.
