HALIFAX — A Gord Downie tribute sculpture has been unveiled at Halifax City Hall, in a room that aims to foster conversations about Indigenous history and reconciliation.

The sculpture was created by artist Al Hattie using recycled metals that emulate a microphone stand and Downie’s signature hat, complete with feathers.

On a wall behind the sculpture — titled “The Last Show” — is the shadowy profile of the Tragically Hip frontman.

The piece is situated in city hall’s Legacy Space, the first municipal building in Canada with a room dedicated to reconciliation.
