Ron Baird

Artist Spotlight at the CNE

If you have ever taken a stroll in the west end of the grounds alongside the Better Living Centre, then you may have noticed a tall metal sculpture. The sculpture was built on site by sculptor Ron Baird who was commissioned by the House of Seagram for the 1968 CNE. The 26-foot high sculpture was originally built in front of the Art Gallery and at a later date relocated to the west side of the Better Living Centre. It is titled 83 after Seagram’s 83 Canadian Whiskey.
