Inter-River Sports Park entryway and baseball backstops are adorned with a variety of colourful shapes and sculptural forms. The artist's creation consists of abstract shapes made from fence materials, which are attached to the fencing and the backstops. Says Kazmer: “I wanted to evoke natural elements such as the river and mountains, but I was also fascinated by the notion of transformation - of what the site once was and what it is now ... Inter River Park now has an entryway that is both visually stimulating and unique.”
