ART IN THE CITY

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

Pub­lic art has been pop­ping up through­out the Cen­tre City — a term cre­ated by mu­nic­i­pal of­fi­cials for much of down­town Cal­gary and the in­ner city — dur­ing the past few years.

In ad­di­tion to the highly pub­li­cized works of Span- ish artist Jaume Plensa (Won­der­land and Al­berta’s Dream) at the Bow tower, there are art­works cre­ated for East Vil­lage.

Th­ese in­clude five mo­saic pan­els called THESAMEWAY­BETTER/READER cre­ated by Cal­gary artist Ron Mop­pett along River­front Lane. They are joined by Bri­tish artist Ju­lian Opie’s Prom­e­nade LED tower, which con­sists of 20 pan­els of an­i­mated draw­ings near the Cal­gary Drop-In Cen­tre.
