With so few people working downtown during these times of restrictions, the entire downtown is quite devoid of people. But if you find yourself in Calgary (or live here) and you haven't encountered Jaume Plensa's extraordinary art, this might be the time to check out both of his works here. Warning: All the buildings are currently closed, and restaurants, if they open, can only do take-out, and nobody is opening their washrooms. So you can come and see this, but you are advised to stay focussed, and enjoy the incredible art. Don't dally though, check out the big statue in the front (south) side and the smaller one in the back (north) side, then return to your hotel or head back home. Restrictions are easing up, so check out all the websites to see what's open and what's not before you head downtown.

You can see this sculpture from a distance as you walk up Centre Street. It is very large and eye-catching. You can also walk into and through it to the other side. Although we were there during the day, there were lights, so it would be interesting to see it lit up at night. The bent wire gives this massive sculpture an unexpected airiness.

I was on an errand downtown, and was near the Bow skyscraper. You can see this fantastic art work for miles, and it is almost irresistible to explore. If you're within miles of the Bow building, do make a point of checking it out, from every angle, inside and out, bring the kids, you won't be disappointed.

We happened across this sculpture by accident, and as it came into view around the corner it was just stunning. Because of its mesh construction, it seems to be only partially there, and as you move round it its aspect changes, and it feels as though it is phasing in and out of place. We didn't go inside, but stopped and admired it for a while.
I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it, but it's close to a lot of places in downtown, and worth a 5-10 minute walk. Its is a nice place to sit and take a break from walking around, if you need one.

This is world-class art. But in the winter, it is now made slightly remote by the widespread closure of the Plus 15 system on weekends. During the week it's easy to get to and enjoy, the restaurants are open during the day. But on the weekend, no longer a reliable all-year tourist attraction.

Calgary really must have issues when they continue to list art statues as attractions for visitors to come see!!

Really let you know that the city that you are visiting is a dud with nothing really to see!!

Calgary advert should be come see our basic city art since we have nothing to offer!! Great way of promoting the city!!

Every place should attempt at getting a vibrant art scene. Calgary attempted at that here. Failed miserably

A beautiful and well designed piece of architectural brilliance. You won’t walk past it without taking its photograph, I promise you.

All good art is an interactive experience to some degree and this work by Jaume Plensa is no exception. It is meant to be viewed from a distance as well close up. You can even walk inside the head which changes your perspective completely. I especially like the night view when it’s all lit up.
