Name The Muskox



The City of Yellowknife would like to congratulate Eric Fuhrmann with the winning entry....“Elon Muskox”!

Eric’s submission received 123 votes. In total, 300 name suggestions were submitted and 475 votes were cast as part of the City’s contest to name the mosaïculture muskox. The winner will be awarded a One-Month City of Yellowknife Family FlexiPass.

The muskox was donated to the City after representing the Northwest Territories as part of an exhibition of mosaïcultures artworks, displayed in Gatineau in 2017 and 2018 as a legacy of Canada 150. Mosaïculture technique combines sculpture for the structure, paint for the palette of colours and horticulture as the means of creating living and changing artworks with plants.

The muskox can be seen in Somba K’e Civic Plaza in front of the City Hall steps, until a permanent location is identified.
