“The hope to end homelessness is set in stone with the dedication of a $40,000 memorial sculpture in downtown Edmonton.
Depicting a wretched figure huddling beneath a doorway, it’s there “to remind Edmontonians always about our shared responsibility to end homelessness,” says renowned local anti-poverty crusader Jim Gurnett, who spearheaded the project created by local sculptors Keith Turnbull and Ritchie Velthius. The piece was installed in the small park off 103A Avenue just North of City Hall.” Full story here.
