Inspired by the oldest living creature in Eastern North America, the public art “Soar” inherited its form from the Eastern White Cedar.

This 17-foot-tall metal sculpture reflects the rich natural heritage of the region, in particular, the Niagara Escarpment through the use of visual layers that are made of stainless steel, corten steel, and copper.


The applied words THROUGH – NATURE – WITH – LOVE – WE – THRIVE beside the panoramic nature in Soar, create an infinite circulation that reflects the ultimate message of this piece: by loving our nature, valuing and protecting it, we may grow and thrive within it peacefully.
