Burnaby artist Bill Thomson, places his ‘Recycling Eagle’ sculpture at the new Vancouver Convention Centre building. Bill’s ‘Recycling Eagle’ is one of over 150 ‘Eagles in the City’ to be located in towns around the province from April 2009 to April 2010. The project is sponsored by the BC Lions Society.
The artist states: ‘Recycling Eagle’, is a urban eagle with a sharp eye for salvage and a popular culture flair for ‘bling’. The silvery wings are embellished with the shiny backs of recycled license plates along with a built in LED light system on the trailing edge of the wings. Check out Thomson’s unique ‘Recycling Eagle’, on your next visit to the waterfront.
