Coined as the world’s longest-running street art work, The RedBall Project has been to over 25 cities worldwide and it adopts each city as its canvas.

The stunning scenery of Calgary is providing a backdrop for the piece in various locations over seven days, culminating at Olympic Plaza on July 1.
