What’s a visit to the Cannery without a photo taken with these three familiar figures? TheĀ iconicĀ Steveston Legacy statues have stood guard in front of the Cannery since 2009, andĀ have been the photo subject of many Instagrams and Tweets.

Created by sculptor Norm Williams, the threeĀ represent individuals from the fishing industry, in a scene reminiscent ofĀ Steveston’s waterfront, circa 1930’s.

The statues are a true example of a community effort, the creation of which wasĀ sponsored by a group of local organizations and individuals, includingĀ the Steveston Rotary, Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society, Steveston Harbour Authority, Steveston High School Alumni AssociationĀ and Steveston Community Society,Ā just to name a few.

If you would like to haveĀ a say about this kind of public art in Steveston’s waterfront area, take a few minutes to respond to the City of Richmond’sĀ Public Art Program Survey;Ā your input may help to shape the future look and feel of the public spaces around the Cannery and its neighbours!
