A memorial could be a good starting point. For public art I always favour something contemporary and abstract.
I agree whole heartedly. Literal public art, especially ones based on local themes, just have a tendency towards being cheesy.
It is time for Halifax to start demonstrating it has something to offer other than its past. We seem to be a city (sorry... municipality) that is afraid to be proud of its present/future. Nothing wrong with respecting the past, but we also have more to offer than lighthouses and ships.
