This is a travelling sculpture celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday featuring 16 paddles painted by Canadian artists. We purchased and dissected a canoe. The challenge was to build a sub structure that both elevated the canoe and displayed the paddles. This piece travelled across the country starting at the CN tower and it had to be reinstalled without the use of any tools. An additional challenge was wrapping a step and repeat vinyl pattern on a compound curve. Steel stanchions also by McWood Studios.
