Former NSCAD President Garry Neill Kennedy's And Still Counting
- originally commissioned to beautify the façade of the Khyber Building while it was undergoing restoration - is on exhibit at Halifax City Hall until March 1, 2010.
For the installation, Kennedy counted and numbered the plywood inserts used to temporarily replace each of the 27 windows. He then chose colours based on their names - names that related to the building itself and its surroundings, like “Turret Brown” or “Ships at Sea.” The typeface used for the numbers was inspired by the numbers painted on the bows of the navy ships entering the Halifax Harbour.
Presented by HRM in collaboration with the Khyber Arts Society and Mr. Kennedy, And Still Counting
is open to the public during City Hall regular business hours (pending availability of the room). Appointments are recommended. To make an appointment, simply call 490-5739, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit HRM’s website.
