3-D chalk art coming to civic centre

Prominent street artist Chalkmaster Dave will be creating a 3-D chalk art display at the Prince George Conference and Civic Centre.

The temporary art will be on display from March 9 to April 7, and was funded by Engineers and Geoscientists BC to mark the organization's 100th anniversary and National Engineering and Geoscience Month.

"For over 100 years, Engineers and Geoscientists BC has been at the forefront of shaping innovation and growth in British Columbia," organization CEO Ann English said in a press release. "As we moe into the future, we will look to new solutions to drive our province forward. Although our world will change, our purpose will remain the same: to protect the public."

The 3-D chalk art installation will showcase three major engineering feats which had a lasting impact on the province: the completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway, the construction of the William R. Bennett Bridge and the demolition of Ripple Rock – a major navigational hazard in the Seymour Narrows.

Other chalk art displays will be created in Vancouver, Kelowna and Victoria.
