COIN BACKS CRAFT

Calgary Herald - Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Condos - — Richard White

An es­ti­mated cost of the two pub­lic art­works by Span­ish artist Jaume Plenze at The Bow tower plaza is be­tween $2.5 mil­lion and $4 mil­lion.

To put that into per­spec­tive, the Glen­bow Mu­seum's en­tire an­nual bud­get for col­lect­ing art is less than $1 mil­lion.

While the City of Cal­gary couldn’t pro­vide a to­tal dol­lar amount or num­ber of works cre­ated as a re­sult of the city's bonus den­sity pro­gram dur­ing the past 30 years, it is cer­tainly in the $20-mil­lion-dol­lar range for 30-plus pieces.
