Oh my gosh, that's like four years overdue!   Hope it was worth the wait.

I saw that the other day and I didn't know what it was.

This from the Region's website:   On September 30, 2014, Council approved the commissioning of Past|Present|Future by Ernest Daetwyler for installation at the Former County Courthouse at 20 Weber St. E., Kitchener. The artwork is a series of seven spheres of different materials relating to evolution and the passage of time. The piece makes a strong artistic statement in line with the project theme, which is evolution of the site and of Regional government. It complements the site, including the historically significant courthouse building and nearby Governor's House and Gaol. People will be encouraged to visit the site to engage with the artwork and enjoy the public space. The artwork will be located on the Queen Street side of the property next to the Ontario Heritage Trust plaques.

From what I understand the brick sphere is made up of bricks reclaimed from buildings around DTK.
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.

Correct.  That represents "Past".

I didn't realize that there were many spheres to make a whole:

We ventured over this weekend past and checked them out! They're very well done.

Not sure if this is best for here, or the Boardwalk thread, but part of the public space includes a splash pad and public washroom at the end of University Ave. The splash pad was hopping during the hot weather.

Pamela Rojas is an amazing artist... she was shortlisted for a collection of sculptures for an ION station, but she was not selected in the end Sad
