Bart Habemiller is a creative protagonist who’s commitment to community is reiterated through his art practice. His sculptures often utilize both repetition of multiples, as well as numerous individual found objects unified through color to reflect the notion of the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Habermiller is known for his ease in shifting between a collaborative art practice, often working with entire communities to realize an installation/sculpture to a solitary practice, favoring the method which best supports his creative vision for a particular artwork.
After receiving a full merit scholarship to complete his Masters in Sculpture from the Art Institute of Chicago, Bart Habermiller returned to Calgary to continue his studio practice. Habermiller quickly become an integral part of Calgary’s burgeoning cultural community. With his strong sense of community, innovative thinking and leadership qualities Habermiller quickly established himself as a keystone in the visual arts. In addition to his 9 years of work as the Curator and Manager for the City of Calgary’s Civic Art Collection, his vast array of projects for which he initiated and facilitated has had an enormous impact on Calgary culture.
