Downtown Edmonton: Jasper Avenue

Downtown Edmonton is home to a collection of public art that is diverse, eclectic and compelling. The art reveals the city's history, its ever-changing culture and shifting ideas about what is valuable and meaningful. Like with all art, Edmontonians have favourites and not-so-favourties. Regardless, the artwork stands as a statement to the many sides of our city's character. Public art in Edmonton flourishes thanks to the efforts of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, the Edmonton Arts Council, and The Places - The Works International Visual Arts Society. Enjoy! -Susan Pointe, Curator of ArtTourYEG
