Have you spotted the lovely songbirds around New West?
Now you can take a closer look with a public art tour!
Front Street Parkade has been looking bright and colorful with Birds on a Branch thanks to artists Jacqueline Metz and Nancy Chew.
This gentle and cheery piece portrays a flock of songbirds resting on branches. The artwork is one of the largest public art installations in the region measuring approximately 660 feet long x 25 feet high. Whoa!
There will be a public art tour that will be held during the first Fridays on Front on July 7th at 5:00pm! Your tour will be led by Councilor Mary Trentadue and will include heritage stories as you walk your way through different sites.
