Claim Post - Scott McKay

Centennial Park

Scott McKay
Claim Post, 2011
Painted steel, 305 x 270 x 80 centimetres

London sculptor Scott McKay has staked his claim in Windsor's riverfront parks with the addition of his 10-foot steel sculpture Claim Post, the 41st sculpture to join the park's collection.

Claim Post was installed in 2012. Designed to attract attention and mark a significant location, it is located at the foot of Oak Street in the Windsor Sculpture Park. According to its creator, "Claim Post marks the potential and proven resources in a vibrant city." It is also a narrative of the sculptor's creative process.

Created from steel, the 7-foot blue pole features flowing yellow, red and orange ribbons representing creative energy, while the post draws on the strength of community.​


About Scott McKay

Claim Post was created by the sculptor Scott McKay and donated by Stephen and Kelly Savage. A metal worker by trade, McKay became interested in found art after viewing a sculpture created by Stephen Lewis composed of found pieces welded into a bird. Claim Post was created at Strong Arm Forage, located in Elgin County, Ontario.
