Each year, we lose some good outdoor art in Winnipeg. For the year indicated, here's a last look at, a last goodbye to some of the artwork that has disappeared that year.

Portage Avenue & Kennedy Street   

   This is another in a series of Heritage-themed Traffic Control Boxes by artist Tom Andrich, which are situated downtown along the north side of Portage Avenue. In 2011 the box was removed from the street because a larger box became required. The box was donated to a private citizen and for 2 years was located at 75 Noble. In 2013 the box was donated to Neechi Markets and is displayed inside there- indoor artwork and Murals are beyond the mandate of this website, so it was moved to the RIP section. When Neechi Foods closed in 2021 the box was rescued by an interested homeowner and now resides in a private backyard in Glenelm. The 2 photos shown here are of the box at its original location at Portage & Kennedy; close to the home of APTV.

Tom Andrich: "I used a bright blue sky for the prairie scene. Phil Fontaine, Elijah Harper, I wanted to put Manitoba Chiefs on here because I wanted something representing the native population. Chief Peguis helped the Selkirk settlers they wouldn't have survived that harsh first winter without him. The headdress represents the assembly of Manitoba Chiefs. The eagle feathers, the White Buffalo are spiritual symbols."
