SCIN student wins First Capital Realty Public Art competition

Michelle Cieloszczyk, a third year student in OCAD University’s Sculpture/Installation program, is the winner of the 2017 First Capital Realty Public Art Competition.

Cieloszczyk’s sculpture, CAN, is a 5-foot-high cast aluminum crushed energy drink can that will be installed at the Shops at King Liberty in Toronto’s West End. This human-sized sculpture reflects on issues of consumerism and consumption. It will be unveiled in the Fall of 2017.

Twelve proposals were received from students in the Faculty of Art, the Faculty of Design, and the Faculty of Graduate Studies, as well as submissions from recent OCAD U graduates. All of the shortlisted submissions will be on display in the Ada Slaight Gallery for the duration of OCAD U’s 102nd Annual Graduate Exhibition (May 3 to 7, 2016).

Xenia Benivolski, writer and curator, OCAD U alumna
