This ‘urban jungle garden with little leopards’ installation was inspired by local stories of two friendly neighbourhood tabby cats.

Kensington helped develop the Utility Box Public Art Program with the City of Calgary in 2017. We have several artist-painted boxes in Kensington focusing on the stories and history of the surrounding neighbourhoods of Hillhurst and Sunnyside.
This City of Calgary program used money for regular life-cycle maintenance of City assets in a creative way: street-level artworks are created on City utility boxes by local artists.
