The Aboriginal Interpretive Trail at MacDonald Island Park is adding a dozen sculptures to its pathway.
As part of the Miquwahkesis project, the 12 new foxes will join the existing foxes on the trail.
During the 2020 flood, twelve foxes were destroyed beyond repair which led the RRC to launch a call to local artists to come up with a design for the new foxes.
“The loss of twelve of the sculptures in 2020 was devastating, so we are so pleased to present this new group to join the existing foxes on the trail,” said Ana Maria Mendez, RRC Recreation and Culture Manager.
“We want to thank all the local artists who responded to our call. We hope the community will enjoy seeing the foxes this summer!”
The new foxes have been created by Barbara Madden, Kritsana Naowakhun, Liam Mojique Legault, Liana Wheeldon, Renee Manners, Ruth Perry, Sedef Uzer Prakash, Shannon Whitbread, Sonia Burke-Smith, Vera Fustic, the Fort McMurray Composite High School – Art Teacher Jennifer Noseworthy, and the Holy Trinity High School – Art Teacher Shauna Kelly.
The new painted foxes are on display at the Kirschner Family Art Gallery at MacDonald Island Park until May 11, before being installed on the trail in July 2022.
