Marbles on Portage

Marbles on Portage, by Erica Swendrowski, will soon animate Portage Avenue. 

The artist sought to create a unique, playful atmosphere within Winnipeg’s historic downtown by installing 20 larger-than-life marble sculptures in planters and in the median on Portage Avenue. The 3’ and 4’6” marbles captivate the imagination of young and old alike and reveal how familiar everyday items can make life extraordinary.  The sculptures incorporate soft glowing light as well as living plants.  The diverse elements will create an atmosphere of imaginative possibilities day and night throughout all four seasons.
