ART IN THE CITY
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.
