Common Unity

George Heagle,



City of Lethbridge issued a call for this work in a three-stage art competition. As the winning submission, George Heagle received a commission to design, fabricate and install a reception desk for a new community art center that was being constructed in downtown Lethbridge.

Communaitus (Latin) “the coming together with gift” is the concept expressed in the Casa reception desk project. Artist, George Heagle, created a work that represents the bringing together of the visual art, craft, performance and larger communities of Lethbridge in one facility through his use of floating wooden blocks (scattered over a panel representing the coulee landscape) which slowly meld together forming a solid foundation on each end of the desk.

Approximate Location: Atrium, Casa, 230 8th Street S, Lethbridge AB
