Wonderland Sculpture, Calgary

4.3
Get inside the mind of Wonderland Sculpture, a mesh artwork created by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa in 2013. This contemporary public piece stands at 12 m (39 ft) and represents a head that can be walked through. Step inside and snap some unusual pictures of your surroundings, including the towering glass skyscraper rising above. Walk around to the north plaza (on the other side of the high-rise) to see the second sculpture by Plensa here.

  • One of my favorite out of many wonderful pieces of art in downtown Calgary, it looks so delicate, a must see if you are strolling around downtown.  more »
  • An interesting piece of public art where you can literally get inside the head of a young girl created by Barcelona artist Jaume Plensa. Twelve metres high and rendered in white bent-wire, this enigma...  more »
  • I have actually left the East Village, National Music Centre or Stampede Park, to head home to northwest, and specifically chosen a Sixth Avenue route to pass by this large art piece. Very impressive.  more »

  • An exceptional piece of art. It is impressive to see from inside.
  • A pointless sculpture that carries little visual or local value. No historic worth, not impressive in its basic construction. The only people rating this positively are wanna-be art photographers. If you are a tourist, there is no point to this.
  • Cool sculpture! Not sure what it means or is built for but it's nice to look at and take photos of.
  • The big head is a beautiful piece of art in the city centre, worth to spend a few minutes here while you are doing a city tour
  • Funky structure in the heart of downtown Calgary. Too bad its not made for climbing because if you try, the abundance of security guards will give you a quick nudge.
