Celebrations surrounding Canada 150
The first of twelve outdoor works is now installed at Stewart Hall
POINTE-CLAIRE, May 12, 2017 – Preparations for Pointe-Claire’s special cultural program for the celebrations surrounding Canada 150 are beginning to take shape with the installation of the first of a dozen outdoor works. These pieces make up the Geopoetics Exhibition that will transform Stewart Park into a creative, multi-faceted site of artistic activity.
The first of these pieces is entitled The Ten Public Works and was created this week by internationally renowned Canadian artist Giorgia Volpe, who is originally from Brazil. Members of the community joined in to collaborate with her on decorating the sculpture.
Consisting of recycled orange safety cones decorated by various people, the work celebrates the fraternity and sharing of fundamental values in the construction of Canada’s identity as a country.
