It is almost certain you will cross the sculptures when walking around Calgary DT. It is located at the Stephen Ave. It makes Calgary looks modern and vibrant.

Walking through Stephen Avenue, we were very impressed with the artwork, including these hangover white pieces, which are large and very overpowering. At no time did we think they were supposed to represent trees, but now we know. Some of the art pieces in Calgary...More

I didn't know these were supposed to represent trees, but I'm not great with understanding art. I love them lit up! Neat to see if in the area, no need to go out of your way.

Well coming across these a few years ago...I was rather intrigued at the art not knowing the purpose. Through a little research...I came to understand that the purpose was to cut down on the wind tunnelling on Stephen Ave. I am not sure if they...More

These are cool sculptures but you're not missing out on anything earth-shattering if you skip this attraction. I use the term "attraction" very loosely as it's just something you would see walking down the street. It's not like people flock to Stephen Avenue to see...More

I love these sculptures. They bring art to the heart of downtown. It becomes the focal point for west 8th avenue. Go shopping on the promenade and take some great photos with the trees int he background. If only the rest of our city had...More
