ARTery FAQ: Why January?

Many have asked us why we chose to mount an outdoor exhibition in northern Alberta in January, and the closely related question, why does it run all night? The first answer to both that it makes use of one of Grande Prairie’s greatest assets; long nights. Yes, it is cold outside, but it is also dark, and darkness increases both the need and the opportunity to bring art to our streets.
