This Blue Ring is one of the worst things that has ever been installed in Calgary. It is in one of the worst locations and is not impressive. How this was even a feature on this website is beyond me. It would be like going all the way to New York or Paris and talking about the smells of the gutters and ignoring all the architecture.

I think I would be upset if my city spent a half million on a street light.

While art may be worth travelling to to see or experience, I cannot believe the Big Blue Ring has made itself worthy of an Atlas Obscura article. The overpriced streetlight is not worth visiting Calgary for.

What they said!! And let’s not even get into the Bowfort Towers, another $500,000 monstrosity.
