FAVOURITE FRIDAY: Which piece of local public art is your favourite?

Read more articles by

Across the Spacing Blog Network today we are asking our readers in Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Otttawa, and the Atlantic cities to let us know which work of local public art is your favourite (feel free to name more than one). We want to hear back from our readers on what they like/dislike about our shared public spaces so we plan to run this feature with regularity.

If possible, please provide a link to a photo you are commenting about. We suggest using Flickr as the photographers that use this site usually provide the best quality images (and often with creative commons usage). And if you really want to be helpful you can provide a link to the work’s location on Google Maps (please use a or URL so we don’t get horribly long links that Google provides).



  1. The new memorial at Halifax North Public Library.   I read a bit of it every time I pass by.   Thanks, George Elliott Clarke.

    North is Freedom.

  2. The curvy concrete wall pierced by several coloured acrylic rods, on Quinpool Road in Halifax. It was created to screen the parking lot of Bens Bread and it has been doing that without much fuss for 40 years of so.
