by local artist Leslie Potter
The Urban Design Placemaker Program installed a temporary artwork in the Mayfair Neighborhood at 33rd street and Ave. C. Harvest Collector is a public artwork by local artist Leslie Potter. It has been exhibited since 2010 in the Farmers Market area. The initiative to relocate this art responds to the requests from public consultations in 2013 to have art on 33rd Street. As well, 33rd Street is identified in the City Wide Urban Design Program for streetscape improvements. The artist description of the work represents his vision for the art. “The gentle and colourful nature of this sculpture creates many variations: a big hay rake, a sheaf of wheat or perhaps a kind of vessel that gathers food.”
Harvest Collector was installed October 3, 2014, and will be in the new location for a few years. The Placemaker Program’s temporary art collection is reviewed by the Visual Arts Placement Jury annually.
