Every year in Winnipeg there is a competition on The Forks skating trail. The competition is between warming huts. Artists build the huts and they are displayed along the trail. They are not what you would think to be a typical hut. They take all shapes and forms. Some are not huts at all, but innovative art work. I checked them out today.
The first one is something called ‘Open Borders’.
A string of nylon orange ribbons that dazzles in the sunlight.
Temple of Lost Things. Created by Winnipeg filmmaker Guy Maddin.
Really big slabs of ice cut out of the red River.
The Totem. People can climb up the structure to a height of 4.5 meters.
A mirrored hut
This one is called Bubble Beach
