David Jacob Harder is hoping that “Together” Richmond will celebrate active living through art.

Commissioned to create a large-than-life work of art outside the new Minoru Centre for Active Living which is scheduled to open later this year, the artist hopes to represent Richmond’s diverse community by collaborating with those currently using the Minoru precinct facilities.

Harder will be hosting several public open house photo sessions through Friday (May 25) in Minoru Park to introduce residents and facility users to the project, hear local stories, and take photos of individuals to contribute to the final artwork. Drop by the Your Minoru tent on the Latrace Field plaza Wednesday (May 23) from 6 to 7:30 p.m. or Friday from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m.

He and his team also plan to photograph people in a variety of activities from swimming to dancing to running. The photos will be used to trace silhouettes that will compose the artwork of an adult and child walking hand-in-hand to the entrance of the new complex.

The new 10,219 square metre (110,000 square foot) Minoru Centre for Active Living complex, currently under construction, will house aquatic, fitness and seniors services as well as multipurpose and support spaces for field sports and park users.
