Celebrations, Cardel Place, Calgary, AB CDA 2004

This public art commission had a community involvement component and was designed to celebrate active living in an urban community. There are 8 life size black and white figures of people engaged in activities such as basketball, yoga, swimming, lacrosse, hockey and figure skating. Images of the audience are also in black and white. The realism is mixed full colour abstract panels that celebrate living in the urban environment. The colour palette and stripes make reference to the markings on the gymnasium floors and arenas.
