Statues are stupid. I’d vote against paying for the installation of any.
Decorative urban art pieces are … better.
My friends have always mocked Calgary for being the WORST city of this size for urban art.
Of hundreds of pieces around the city of 1.35 million I can only recall a few I like.
In 2012 this sculpture was installed to celebrate First Nations of Treaty 7 and the Stampede.
Designed to look like a half teepee, the semi-circlular sculpture depicts historic iconography that represents the Kainai, Piikani, Siksika, Nakoda and Tsuut’ina.Avenue Calgary
Personally, I’ve always admired the Family of Man outside the Calgary School Board offices downtown.
EVERYONE loves this funny art piece on the 8th Avenue Mall. It’s called The Conversation.
That’s it. There are NO MORE appealing urban sculptures. We are living proof that there is little culture in Cowgary.
