Eight Epic Horses welcomed to downtown courthouse park

Eight Epic Horses welcomed to downtown courthouse park

This past Wednesday, the Calgary Stampede, together with the Province of Alberta and the City of Calgary, unveiled Joe Fafard’s sculpture “Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Si Do,” in its new home at the courthouse park.

The artwork is the second in a series and is made of eight powder-coated 5/8 inch cut-steel plate horses. It was created to commemorate Quebec City’s 400th anniversary and celebrate the Calgary-Quebec City sister-city relationship. The first in the series, which was presented as a gift to Quebec City in September last year, resides along the banks of the St. Lawrence River.

 

Despite the heavy downpour that morning, the sun came out just in time and more than 140 people attended to take part in the celebration including the Honourable Ed Stelmach, Premier of Alberta; Michael Casey, Calgary Stampede President and Chairman of the Board; George Brookman, Calgary Stampede Past President; and His Worship Naheed Nenshi, Mayor of the City of Calgary.

Brookline was responsible for the flawless event execution and media relations, even managing to bring the sun out for the big announcement.
