|"Chase" on the roof of the entrance of Richcraft Recreation Center, Innovation Drive, Ottawa|
During my recent visit of the newly opened Richcraft recreation complex in Kanata North, I encountered an interesting piece of Ottawa's public art. Anna Williams' and Erin Robertson's bronze sculptures “Chase” depict a fox chasing a ball in over the roof and in front of the the entrance of the rec complex. They are financed through the City of Ottawa and a good fit for that center – because they joyfully combine playing and exercise.
|The fox eventually catches the ball...|
The life-size fox, captured in seven poses, runs after a small red ball across the roof of the entrance, then down to the pavement and off into the nearby woods while eventually catching the ball. I bet children will have fun with these public artworks – the newly opened Richcraft recreation complex is a good site for art like that!
