What is the sculpture on Legacy Mount?

The ‘Open Hearts Icon’ sculpture, an original design created by renowned artist and actress Jane Seymour, was unveiled to the public on October 1st, 2016. The Developer gifted the ‘Open Hearts Icon’ to Legacy in an effort to promote Public Art in Suburban Settings and to enrich the community environment.

Is there a meaning behind the Sculpture?

Jane Seymour’s ‘Open Hearts’ sculpture represents the importance of always living with an open heart and a vision for Calgarians to grow closer to one another through acts of togetherness and community. The sculpture’s placement in Legacy reflects WestCreek’s vision for its residents to be able to enjoy Calgary’s growing cultural landscape from the comfort of their own community. We encourage everyone to take the time to visit the sculpture and think about what it means to have an Open Heart.
