CBE – Mayor Nenshi wears hard hat designed by Willow Park student for Arts Hub groundbreaking ceremony
It’s not every day you get to give Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi one of your very own designs to wear. But that’s exactly what happened to Willow Park School’s own Grade 8 student Giovanna Acosta after she won a competition to design a hard hat for the groundbreaking ceremony at the new cSPACE King Edward Creative Hub & Arts Incubator.
Willow Park was chosen as the only CBE school to share in this exceptional experience. The design competition was for an artistic hard hat concept and accompanying artist statement that would be worn by one of the dignitaries at the ceremony alongside the work of other professional Calgary artists such as Verna Vogel, Billie Ray Busby, and Daniel Kirk.
