Alexander Square IS AWESOME: That’s why there’s a giant anvil in Leg-in-Boot Square
Friday July 20th, 2018
Leg-in-Boot Square along the seawall in False Creek has an industrial history of forges and boat building. A new public art sculpture has been installed in honour of that past for the Vancouver Biennale. Calgary-born artist Maskull Lasserre’s Acoustic Anvil: A Small Weight to Forge the Sea references the massive tapered hulls of floating ships mirroring naval mooring bollards and hinting at a reddened upturned boot.
