A new public art piece was installed over the weekend at the Millennium Library in downtown Winnipeg.

Called Emptyful, the piece was created by Vancouver artist Bill Pechet and stands 35-feet tall. The complete installation will take several months and will be a permanent fixture in the city’s downtown.

The structure was funded by both the Winnipeg Cultural Capital of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage, and the Winnipeg Arts Council’s Public Art program.

It’s the largest public art project in Winnipeg to date.
