Charry's Corner Clock Tower

Damon Dowbak
7m high (24'h)
Steel, copper, lexan glass, concrete
1995
Charry's Corner, Simpson Street & Fort William Road

In 1995 the City received project funding from the Canada/Ontario Infrastructure Works Program to renew Simpson Street in the city's south ward. The intersection of Fort William Road and Simpson Street, known as Charry's Corner, was identified as site for a public art installation by artist Damon Dowbak of Thunder Bay, whose design was selected through open competition. The 7m high clock tower blends form and function and is fabricated from concrete, lexan glass, steel and copper. The artist's studio, Kleewyck Glass, is located several storefronts away at 601 Simpson Street.
