Anna Chase, a third-year student in Durham College (DC)’s Graphic Design program, has made her mark on Oshawa’s downtown core with her art piece “The Games”. Featured on the crosswalk at the intersections of Athol and Mary Street and Athol and Albert Street, Chase’s art piece was selected during a Call for Artwork, as part of the City of Oshawa’s Public Art Program.
Created with the theme of Pan American culture, sport, teamwork and collaboration in mind, Chase designed an illustration of a boxer and weightlifter in poses representing strength and athleticism.
“I’m thrilled to have my work showcased for everyone to see as they attend the Pan Am games,” said Chase. “It’s great to have this kind of exposure and another piece to add to my portfolio as I enter my final year at DC.”
The piece is located at the intersections connected to the General Motors (GM) Centre, which will be hosting both the boxing and weightlifting events during the games.
