151 individual 6” hand painted works were commissioned from diverse artists selected by Devan Patel of East End Arts, ArtWorks and Project Gallery for the backs of the metal punched plates. Themes of the work include active living, nature, inclusion and access.
This project was activated by a set of community runs and scavenger hunts at public sites on or near the Pan Am Path. Leading the active HIIT work outs, scavenger hunts and runs we partnered with former athlete turned fitness instructor and influencer, Beverly Cheng.
