Prairie Winds Park Public Art Project

​Description The City of Calgary Public Art Program and Calgary Parks have hired Incipio Modo, an artist collective, to create a permanent public art project at the redeveloped Prairie Winds Park.

Prairie Winds Park, located at 223 Castleridge Blvd. N.E. has been a popular and well –loved destination and gathering place for nearly a quarter century. The park was identified for renewal, and Parks developed a design development plan that will enhance Prairie Winds Park as a regional destination park that supports a wide-range community use. The final Prairie Winds Park Report was approved by Council and detailed design is now underway.

This is an exciting opportunity to create a site –specific public artwork suitable for the outlook (hill) or entry plaza locations identified in the call.
​Public Art Budget ​$71K
​Year Approved ​2015
