guerrilla art in a rural town
In 2005 and 2006 Terry Drahos, Patrick Farrell, and Nicole Evans anonymously presented a series of gestural figure sculptures in Wolfville Nova Scotia that are still affectionately known as “the twig people”. Sculptures were constructed in a single evening and placed around town under the cover of night. It was a year long game the artists played with the town. The fun and intriguing project gave the community a stronger desire for a need for accessible public art.
Since 2006 the town of Wolfville has drafted a public art policy, numerous permanent murals and sculptures have been commissioned throughout the county and a virtual map to all of these cultural treasures has been created by Kings County,
This simple project launched a desire for public art in Kings County’s rural community.
