3 art installations up for award
Three Calgary public art installations have been nominated for the top 100 People’s Choice Codaawards. The Codaaward is given annually by Codaworx to “remarkable works that successfully integrate art into interior, architectural and public spaces.” The three nominated pieces from Calgary are Emergent by artist Jill Anholt on the corner of
1st Street and 9th Avenue S.W. downtown, across from the Palliser Hotel; Macleod Trail by artist Vicki Scuri, at the Macleod Trail and 162nd Avenue S.E. interchange; and the YW Hub Facility. The top 100 were chosen by a 16-person jury from 446 nominations. The jury will decide on a winner in 10 categories and two people’s choice winners are decided by a public vote at codaworx.com.
The public has until June 30 to vote on the top 100 nominees. Winners will be announced on Aug. 30.
