The City of St. Catharines will officially celebrate the completion of its newest public art display, a metal sculpture inspired by the Two Row Wampum belt, during the third annual Celebration of Nations.

Curtain Call, designed and installed by artist Lilly Otasevic, was constructed earlier this summer outside the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre on Carlisle Street.

The work of art, a painted aluminum sculpture of colourful oversized beads that follow a wavy shape similar to a wampum belt, was funded in part by the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage Canada 150 Program as a legacy component of Celebration of Nations, as well as the arts centre’s public art reserve.

An unveiling, free and open to the public, will take place Friday, Sept. 6, at 5:30 p.m., at the site of the installation
