Calgary, Alberta, Canada: Two Giant Chairs in a Pile

"Homage" by Derek Michael Besant is two 20-foot-tall steel chairs, one on its side, the other balanced on top upside-down. A commentary on giant chairs as roadside art? Maybe, but more likely not.

Two Giant Chairs in a Pile

The giant chairs are in a pile on a narrow road with college parking on the other side. We zipped in on a Saturday with school out, so pulling into the parking lot was easy.
