Douglas Coupland to create Calgary’s largest public artwork
Renowned Canadian artist and author Douglas Coupland will add a new work of global significance to Calgary’s vibrant public art scape. ‘Northern Lights’, a 160,000 square foot LED-based art installation at the new TELUS Sky tower, will become the biggest public art piece in Calgary. TELUS Sky is set to be the third tallest building in the city’s skyline when it opens in early 2019. The north and south façades of the 60-storey mixed-use tower rising above 7th Avenue SW and Centre Street South will showcase the compelling installation, which will be programmable to change colour and lighting sequences.
