If you take a look across the road just ahead, you'll see a sculpture that you might miss at first glance. Just look for two men talking to each other, two stone men that is. This piece is appropriately named The Conversation!
This bronze sculpture was donated to the city by Norcen Energy Resources and was created by William Hodd McElcheran. The sculpture depicts two businessmen in coats and fedoras, one with a briefcase, most likely conducting some kind of deal.
As a part of the historic Stephen Avenue and the Pedestrian Mall, The Conversation is one of Calgary’s most famous sculptures!
