CALGARY, ALBERTA…

In her senior year, Kat Wawrykow co-founded The Fridge Gallery at the Alberta College of Art and Design with Darryl Sinclair. The pair lobbied the university to fund ACAD’s first Graphic Design/Advertising/Illustration gallery, for future generations of Visual Communication Design (VCD) to utilize.

Kat Wawrykow acted as Creative Director for the end of year inaugural mural to celebrate the creation of the gallery. She flew alumni Wes Niven from Boston to collaborate with student James Mackenzie on the mural, who also gave an artists talk to the university.

Administration attempted to expel her for painting school property but she fought the man and won.

In 2017 Kat Wawrykow received the ACAD Senior Legacy Award for the creation and impact of The Fridge Gallery.
