It was last November when Shannon Lansue pitched her idea for a structure that has now taken shape at the Waterfront Park near the Blue Water Bridges in Point Edward.
At the time, Lansue was successful in competing for a $1,000 “no strings attached” grant from the Awesome Foundation.
On Friday (July 8, 2016), the “Not an Igloo” interactive display was open to the public. Here’s how Lansue describes the set up, which is constructed of polyethylene pipe, held together with reinforced yarn:
As she mentioned in the video, there is a “bag” of labels that people who wander by during the two weeks the art display will be in place (it comes down July 22) can fill out and tie to the pipes.
“Share a hope, a dream, a goal, a quote, a desire, a thought, or an accomplishment,” are the instructions Lansue and her friends have on a sign attached to the structure.
It’s a conversation starter if nothing else.
