In Churchill Square in downtown Edmonton last Saturday (that would be 2016 April 2nd):
Tix on the Square
Painted Square and City Hall
I was wandering through downtown Edmonton at noon one day this past week, just getting some fresh air and capturing images of a few things that caught my eye:
Here are some more images from Edmonton’s inaugural Nuit Blanche on 2015 September 26:
Moon Rise over Canada Place
Inside Edmonton’s City Hall – The Art and Architecture
City Hall Roof with Projector
Bikes in the Night
Art Gallery of Alberta
“The World We Want (outside the Winspear)
Edmonton Public (Stanley Milner) Library
The Balloon-filled Pedway
and back to my favorite:
2015 September 26, Nuit Blanche finally comes to Edmonton. Here are some images from the first couple of hours of the all night arts celebration in and about Churchill Square.
Shortly after 7 PM the crowds start to gather in Churchill Square with the wish trees.

Inside City Hall – a seemingly simple, yet fascinating dynamic creation – Ouroboros
A small street market for the night
“It’s not art – or is it?”
A colorful forest of wishes

A early afternoon stroll in downtown Edmonton revealed a lot of natural and man-made beauty.
Colorful Library Parkade Entrance
One of the things that most caught my eye was the progress on the Kelly Ramsay Tower construction. Especially impressive was seeing the unveiling of the historic facade at the base of the building.It seems they have done a great job in cleaning up the brickwork and restoring it to its former glory.

Falling Leaves beside City Hall
One of Edmonton’s iconic pyramids is atop Edmonton City Hall – but not today!
Well no, the pyramid is still there but here are a few photos which feature other aspects of the building (but you can see the pyramid in the first image):

Being late April we are between seasons as shown in the previous picture. The blue at the bottom is neither a skating rink now a fountain/wading pool.
