About this place

The Emily Carr Statue in Victoria pays tribute to the acclaimed Canadian artist Emily Carr, a proud resident of the city. Crafted by the talented sculptor Barbara Paterson and commissioned by the Parks and Recreation Foundation of Victoria, the bronze monument captures Carr in a seated pose, accompanied by her Javanese monkey 'Woo' on her shoulder and her loyal dog 'Billie' nearby, all poised on the grounds of the Fairmont Empress Hotel along Victoria's Harbourfront. Unveiled during Women's History Month in Canada on October 13th, 2010, this statue stands as a fitting homage to the artistic legacy of Emily Carr, contributing to the cultural richness of the city she called home.
