365 Canadian Sights | Day 317: Wonderland sculpture

Less than 10-years-old, this modern sculpture quickly became a highlight of Calgary’s public art collection. The giant wire mesh head treads a difficult line, in my opinion. Objectively it looks cool, so for people who aren’t artsy it’s easy to look at and get something from, even if it’s only a brief “Neat!” It’s also,… Read More 365 Canadian Sights | Day 317: Wonderland sculpture
