Here is the description of the Talus Dome art that appears on the median at the South end of the Quesnell Bridge in Edmonton.
Every City of Edmonton project must have an art component worth 1% of the total budget. This piece was installed in 2012 after completion of some major revisions to the Quesnell Bridge. It has long reviled by many Edmontonian’s as a “waste of money”, “worst piece of City art ever”, “worst art placement” in the City. We do not share those views. Every time we drive by it, we smile and think of the fun we have had playing with our reflections in them
This was almost the first place we stopped on our September 17/20 anniversary day adventures. Although bright and gleaming from afar, weather and pollution have not been kind to the mirror like surface on the balls. Nonetheless, we had some fun.
