2016 Art Banned The Year Before Canada's 150


Banned Art: Fort McMurray The Beast 
The 2016 Fire and Rain art project that focused my canvases and camera on wildfires of Alberta was banned 3 times on the Alberta Legislature grounds by officials, including the Legislative Assembly's Sergeant-of-Arms who said showing art on the grounds was inappropriate. I was later threatened with police action by a City of Edmonton employee on New Year's Eve for showing a painting from the Fire and Rain collection 'Escape from Fort McMurray.' I defended my right to freedom of expression with Civil Information Actions by being the media and employing respect for all people, property and the rule of law while picketing both the Government of Alberta and the City of Edmonton. After 42 days in total I won back my right and freedom to express myself with art in public. The City had apologized March 2017 while the 3 Alberta Legislature officials who verbally banned me in 2016 remain unapologetic.
