Art on the Skating Trail

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’.
