PDP #280: Catching All the Spirits

Vancouver's Expo 86 left a great deal of legacies behind. The most obvious ones are in Vancouver itself, in the form of the SkyTrain network and the silver geodesic golf ball that is Science World. Some of the things made for it went a bit further afield - and one of the more distant ones is the Spirit Catcher. Originally standing near the floating McDonald's, the sculpture - meant to represent the Thunderbird, "the messenger for carrying people's dreams and desires to the Creator," was installed on the Barrie waterfront in the late 1980s as the core of the Maclaren Art Centre's collection.
