For Calgary’s spectacular new 330,000 sq. ft. Seton Recreational Facility, Donald Lipski created a nine foot diameter acrylic “nest” with three flocks of life-sized hawks, owls and herons flying to it, each bringing a new branch for the nest. The nest was built in Denver, CO and the birds were brilliantly sculpted by Christopher Collins in Pennsylvania. Select images and text from Donald Lipski: donaldlipski.net.
