Dude Chilling Park sign to be installed tomorrow

The Dude Chilling Park sign is being permanently installed in Guelph Park after a long battle to save the public art piece.

The public artwork mimics standard park signs found in city parks and was designed and donated by artist Victor Briestensky.

The sign is a light hearted reference to the wooden sculpture Reclining Figure by Michael Dennis installed in Guelph Park in 1991 and celebrates the unique characteristics of the park and neighbourhood.

The sign will be unveiled in Guelph Park on Thursday, February 27 at 11:00 a.m.

The sign mysteriously appeared in late 2012, and later generated an 1,800-signature online petition demanding the sign remain permanently.

The sign even caught the attention of late night host Jimmy Kimmel.
