Calgary Stampede 100 Years of Champions

Site: Calgary, AB


Collaborators: Calgary Stampede Public Art Committee | F&D Scene Changes


Enormous horseshoes rise from the ground, inscribed with names of those who have competed and won in this storied Canadian event.


A merging of the modern and the historical, elegant arcs are given a vintage look with three distressed metal finishes that suggest the iron and rust of a well-used horseshoe.


As a symbol of this iconic event and a celebration of its committed particpants, the horseshoes bring the stampede experience into a public space where passers-by can interact with a piece of Calgary’s history.
