Birds on a Branch Public Art Tour

Tuesday, July 4, 2017

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!
