The future of CBC Calgary's sculpture 'Steel Wave' by Leadbeater

The Homestretch

It's been about a year since we left the old CBC Calgary location on Memorial Drive. There are a few updates on the old building. It will be torn down, to make way for a residential development. Demolition on the interior has already begun. But what is to become of the large orange sculpture that sat out in front of the building? The piece was made in 1978 by the late artist Roy Leadbeater. It's called "Steel Wave." At the end of this month, it too will move to a new home. It was donated to the Kiyooka Ohe Arts Centre in Springbank. Local artist Harry Kiyooka is the co-owner of the centre. He joined host Doug Dirks in studio.
