Emerging from Saint John, as the Cultural Capital of Canada in 2010, successful arts awards known as the Originals were developed to celebrate our sesquicentennial. The unveiling of the art piece “Gray Jay” created by artist Phil Savage will be presented at the public art walking tour. Chalkmaster Dave, the Yoda of Chalk will begin creating over 150 images in our city. Live performances featuring the recipients of 2017 small grants and the board will sound the first whistle of the summer at 5pm! This will also be the official kickoff for the Canada 150 Celebrations.
