WINNIPEG — The recently-opened Waverley Underpass is getting a touch of artistic landscaping to complete its look.
Outcroppings is an aluminum landscape sculpture by artist Jyhling Lee that was commissioned by the Winnipeg Arts Council.
“From having lived in the prairies, I feel a strong connection to this region’s landscape, skies, light, and climate,” said Lee, of Figureground Studio. “For me, the physical and cultural richness, power, and imagination derived from this land are strong forces at play in the creation of this artwork.”
The series of sculptural outcroppings will be installed in the summer of 2020 along the sloped greenspace to the south of the new underpass and east of the active transportation pathway, acting as a gateway between the neighbourhoods of River Heights and Linden Woods.
Outcroppings is approximately 50 metres in length and will light up at night to signal the new Waverley Underpass site.
