Presentation of the artworkCoyote2Coyote, a work by the Muse Atelier collective, is composed of two bronze sculptures portraying coyotes. One is positioned on a polygon made of white Ductal concrete, and the other stands on the ground. Both are looking west, toward Lethbridge. The polygon refers to the eroded forms of coulees, typical of the geography around Lethbridge. The totemic figure of the coyote as a mythical animal evokes both the Albertan landscapes and the urban spaces where they are found throughout Canada. The pair of animals also refers to the spirit of fraternity expressed by the twinned cities of Saint-Laurent borough and Lethbridge.
Associated eventsThe Montréal borough of Saint-Laurent and the City of Lethbridge agreed to present each other with a work of public art to celebrate the 50th anniversary both of their being twin cities and of the exchanges established on the occasion of the centenary of Canadian Confederation.
