Passing by the National Arts Centre one day before the thaw started, I wanted to take some photos of the sculpture honouring the great Canadian jazz musician Oscar Peterson. It's a popular photo stop- two other people were busy taking pics while I was doing the same. This sculpture is done by the artist Ruth Abernethy, who also did the John McCrae statue I showed you two days ago- one of two, as the other is in McCrae's hometown of Guelph, Ontario. The Peterson sculpture was unveiled by Queen Elizabeth II in 2010, and the NAC has a speaker on the wall above playing his music regularly. If you look closely in the background of the third and fifth shots, you might make out the National War Memorial as well. And have a look at this video for people interacting with Oscar.
