Central Public Library
Louis Archambault, c. 1970
Bronze sculpture on a concrete plinth
Winged Man was donated to the City of Burlington’s Public Art Collection by the Canadian Federation of University Women. The sculpture was originally located in Spencer Smith Park before it was relocated to Burlington Central Library. Employing weight, form and empty space, Winged Man is geometric and mystical. Archambault uses bronze in non-traditional ways, leaving the meaning of the sculpture open to interpretation by the viewer. An identical bronze casting of this work is found in the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts collection. Louis Archambault (1915 - 2003) was an active and influential modern sculptor in Canada. The artist was awarded the Centennial Medal in 1967 and the Order of Canada in 1968.
