TBT – Eagles in the City in 2009

28 Jul

Blog Post #109

In 2009, the BC Lions Society ran a community art project, Eagles in the City, in support of its Easter Seal Services. This project had local artists, creating unique designs on 7.5 foot fibreglass bald eagles which were then displayed in public places throughout participating cities in Greater Vancouver, Vancouver Island and the BC Interior. This was the third in the BC Lions’ trilogy of art projects — Orcas in the City, Spirit Bears in the City and Eagles in the City

The eagle in the following two photographs — showing the front and the back of the sculpture — is entitled “The Forest” by Stewart Jacobs. It was displayed at 666 Burrard Street in Vancouver.
