uncommon common art project

In the summer of 2007 Terry Drahos conceptualized a public art project presented in a large rural environment. Inviting fellow artists Uncommon Common Art (UCA) was launched in the summer of 2008. Over the next twelve years Drahos grew the organization from an ad hoc group of artists to a year round register charity that not only presented public art but art education programming that touched the lives of thousands of children in rural Nova Scotia.


Having run its’ course UCA was closed at the end of 2019. UCA’s twelve years of public art has not only changed the face of Kings County, Nova Scotia but inspired new visual art maps and public art projects. Over the years UCA offered an opportunity for artists emerging and established, with varied art practices and backgrounds to collaborate and communicate.
