For those of you with an iPhone this is a great way to tour the downtown with the kids. This is a free app put out by the city of Calgary with a tour of the art sculptures downtown – if you’re like me then you’ve seen many of them and never thought twice about them. This tour lets you know who the artist is and what the piece is named and represents. Use it as a scavenger hunt for the kids to find all the pieces. The tour time recommended is an hour but you can skip parts if you want. The info is written so sadly there’s no voice recording but it means you can read out the parts that kids would be interested in and leave the rest for your knowledge! So next time you’re downtown and want something fun to it try this app out.
Update: if you don’t have an iPhone print off this paper version before heading out.
