FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre,
St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada
Drawing inspiration from indigenous Wampum belt, the Curtain Call sculptural installation adorns the eastern wall of the Performing Arts Centre in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. This sculpture is conveying multilayered historical as well as contemporary aspects of this particular site that was a main trade route of the indigenous people and European settlers. The sculpture also represents a reference to the wavy curtain as in a theatre curtain being that this particular building is a performing arts center. Overall dimensions are: 45′ length, 13.5′ height and 6′ depth (at farthest point from the wall). It was constructed from a marine-grade aluminum and finished with a range of metallic car paint shades. This sculpture represents diversity, present and past as well as our inter-connectedness.
