Local artist Jennifer Stead is the winner of the public art competition for the Churchill Avenue Rehabilitation Project. Stead’s sculpture Tree of Life will be situated at the southeast corner of Churchill and Byron Avenues, and is scheduled for installation in the Spring of 2015.
Standing 5.5 metres (18 feet) tall, the artwork will be fabricated from one-inch-thick powder-coated aluminum and will resemble the silhouette of a tree from one perspective, and a vase of flowers from another. Hidden in the branches are images that pay tribute to the community’s history. The artist selected vibrant yellow and orange – sunset colours - to create a focal point for all seasons.
