As we reach mid-May and with the long weekend approaching, there are few more fleurs de lys that are being constructed to complete the 3000 count! After that, all 9000 sculptures for the installation will be completed. Potters continue to work on the glazing process night and day. Already in the storage facility there are 5000 finished and wrapped sculptures waiting for the week of June. Beginning mid-June, the installation process will begin at the Canadian Museum of Nature. Unveiling will take place on June 17, 2017!
The numbers of people participating in Populace continue to grow. The numbers of Populace sculptures being made is also growing. We are now at 4200 and counting with many events planned to make this installation a beautiful community project. Almost half of the way there!
In anticipation of next June 2017, these few sculptures were planted on grass to get a hint of the look of the final installation of 9000 flowers and feathers that will be located at the Canadian Museum of Nature. Populace will be a show-stopper!
