Dennis Oppenheim's 'Device to Root Out Evil' was originally installed on Vancouver's waterfront, but was then moved to outside Calgary's Glenbow Museum. It's a 22-foot upside-down church, and it's controversial because it's been seen by many to represent the church and religion's place in today's society.

Gerald Gladstone's 'Universal Man' has been called the world's ugliest sculpture. It sits outside Toronto's Yorkdale Shopping Centre, but was originally located just outside the CN Tower. It cost $100,000 and was a CN Rail project. When it was moved in 1987 due to Skydome's construction, its right hand broke off. It was later relocated to a piece of vacant railway downtown, where it sat face down until 1994 when it was put in its current place outside Yorkdale.
