There will be a tour with the artist that made these sculptures in the afternoon.
update: I was able to go on the tour, and it was really fascinating! It turns out that these sculptures are the collaborative work of 3 artists, sculptor Catherine Burgess, printmaker Walter Jule and sculptor Royden Mills - of the Edmonton area artist collective Tricycle. All three of them were available during the tour, and it was really interesting to hear all the background that went into these being commissioned, the ellaborate planning that went into it, and the hard work that brought it all together. After viewing these, we all went to the Praire Path, where they talked to us about the other installations they designed. I'm so glad I was able to take it all in!
