Installing ‘Chinook Arc’

We are currently in Calgary installing what is possibly the world’s largest acrylic sculpture, the immersive and interactive Chinook Arc by artists Joe O’Connell and Blessing Hancock.

Despite the cold weather, the installation is going well. We are ably assisted by a great crew from F&D Scene Changes. We worry more about ourselves than about Chinook Arc. The sculpture itself is well equipped for the cold. Acrylic panels are free to expand and contract as they float upon flexible bushings attached to the steel skeleton.

The City of Calgary filmed this short video as our trucks arrived:

Later, Joe did a short radio interview with the CBC, explaining the sculpture: #gallery-4 { margin: auto; } #gallery-4 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-4 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-4 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */
