South Lawn: MacEwan Student Centre


Colette Whiten and Paul Kipps
Olympic Arch, 1988
bronze and steel

Located on the lawn east of the MacEwan Student Centre, near the main entrance to the Physical Education Building.

Funded by Trans-Canada Pipelines Ltd., this arch formed the entrance to the Athletes Village during the 1988 Winter Olympics. Following the games, the arch was moved to the Calgary Municipal Building, then returned to The University of Calgary in 1991 to celebrate The University's 25th anniversary.
