Over the course of the past couple of decades, Amacon has been a dedicated patron of public art, contributing over $3 million to artists across the country in support of the arts community. As a leading Canadian developer, our contribution to the community has always been paramount, and one of the ways we give back is through the installation of parks, sculptures, and beautiful art pieces. These artworks not only support fellow Canadians but gives back to the residents of the broader community.
Title: House of Roots, 2003 | Artist: Jeanette Lee | House of Roots is a freestanding contemporary steel sculpture integrated in the grounds of Paulik Neighbourhood Park. The green growth of the original nursery on the site inspired the metaphoric organic forms that line the roof of this sculpture. The walls are filled with root-like forms, symbolic of the past and present history of the land. This sculpture stands as the entrance of a small inside world and offers a historically inspired view of an outside world.
