The Spirit Catcher in downtown Barrie is pretty hard to miss. It towers over the waterfront at the base of Maple Avenue. Its image can also be found on most promotional material about Barrie.
Originally made for Expo ’86 and installed in Vancouver, British Columbia, this sculpture by Ron Baird was installed in Barrie in June of 1987. It was a donation from the Helen McCrea Peacock Foundation in Toronto to the Barrie Gallery Project.
