“The Alberta wild rose lasts through drought, and it lasts through floods.
It’s a resilient, beautiful little plant.” – Anonymous
In June 2013, southern Alberta was hit with unprecedented flooding. While Calgary has been recovering steadily, there are still so many areas that may never recover. The flood has literally changed the face of the landscape forever.
Over 450 professional and emerging artists donated artwork to The Alberta Flood Rose Project to raise money for flood relief in Alberta at the Flood of Roses Auction event at Hotel Arts in Calgary.
