March 14-30, 2016 / Edmonton, AB

Every personal expression starts somewhere. Through traditional mediums and creative endeavours, we continually strive to express ourselves in the ways that we know best. Each expression begins with an intense feeling or inspiration that works to catalyze unique and personal creativity. Our spark is the idea that ignites individual passion, and in turn, artistic expression.

SPARK, the 5th annual Engineering Art Show, runs March 14 – 30, 2016 and features pop-up art exhibits, workshops, and performance art. The pop-up art exhibits, installed within the University of Alberta's engineering buildings, and workshops across the city are open to all engineering students, faculty, professionals, and retirees. The final closing reception featuring art exhibits and performance art will be held on Wednesday, March 30th (5-8pm, Faculty Club).
