10. Manitoba’s Humongous Easel, Altona, Man.
Did you know that famed artist Vincent van Gogh has a unique connection to Manitoba? Reaching for the clouds high above Altona’s Millenium Park is one of the world’s largest tributes to the Dutch painter. Leaning atop one of the world’s largest easels is a 23 metre high reproduction of a van Gogh sunflower painting. Local artist Cameron Cross lovingly created this uncanny copy of the floral masterpiece in 1998. The ambitious project took two and a half years, 17 gallons of paint and 24 sheets of plywood to complete. Why Altona? The town is renowned as the sunflower capital of Canada.
