ART SHOW: “For the Love of Crude”

WHEN: Thurs. Sept 4, 2014

WHERE: Manning Centre, 514 11 Ave SW, Calgary AB

ABOUT: Fossil fuels gives us comfort, mobility and freedom. What’s not to love? At a time when oil is a dirty word, Olivier Ballou thinks it’s time to give crude its due. Inspired by the Art Deco movement that celebrated the Machine Age, he proposes a new aesthetic for the Oil Age. Olivier is a graphic artist and the Manning Centre’s Director of Communications.
