Calgary is full of public art. (But not nearly enough for my taste.) Today I made an afternoon out of photographing as many public art pieces as I possibly could.

Nice balls. Also on Stephen Avenue.

Next, I'm off to East Village to find one of Calgary's newest public art projects: The largest free-standing mosaic in Canada! But not before I stumble upon these lovely public toilets. Ta da!

This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
