12 of 100 key works

In late 2019, we put out a call to our readers to submit nominations for key works of visual art in public spaces. This resulted in a few hundred nominations. Eventually, a list of 100 key works was compiled, which will be announced in its entirety on 13 March. Here we are announcing 12 of them: a random selection from the list of 100, but one from each province.
