image001In association with CultureDays.ca you are invited to discover a new public art commission Falling Star by Don Maynard. Meet the artist, enjoy hands-on art activities and experience star gazing with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. Bring the whole family and explore the new public art in Half Moon Bay Park!

Falling Star was commissioned by the City of Ottawa Public Art Program for Half Moon Bay Park in Barrhaven South. The 13-foot high cast aluminum sculpture sits atop the toboggan hill, balanced on one of its five points. As if fallen from the sky, the artwork creates a bridge between the immensity of the celestial universe and our place on earth. Falling Star will shimmer during the night from the hundreds of holes emanating light- making reference to the celestial bodies and constellations above.

Watch the installation of Falling Star on YouTube.
