The Bottega Windsor: St. Clair College
November 1, 2022 - November 28, 2022
WFCU Eco-Lounge, 3rd floor
The Bottega Windsor project is a collaborative reimagining of the Vision Corridor in Windsor, ON. The outdoor space located next to Art Windsor-Essex at the corner of Bruce Ave. and Riverside Drive West, was redesigned by students from the Interior Design program at St. Clair College.
The Bottega Windsor is a workshop interlaced with various artist studios, exhibitions and retail spaces. This is designed to be a place tor artists to feel inspired to work, and a place for art enthusiasts to visit and appreciate the works of local artists. The mood is vibrant and energizing with bold colors, patterns, textures and mixed media. The art displays throughout will give the space a variety of interesting views for the visitor to admire, while browsing or sitting under the umbrella of the courtyard tree. The lively bar, band, and dance area will attract a hip crowd for events. This is a place where the Arts and the community come together and intertwine. The acronyms in the logo “B/W” represent the seemingly opposite forces that are interconnected.
