To commemorate Canada's 150th anniversary, The Canadian College of Performing Arts Launched a brand new initiative, The Canadian Legend Award. This award is presented to a Canadian performing artist for his/her lifetime achievement and in recognition of his/her invaluable contribution to Canadian culture and the role they have played in nurturing young artists. 

 In Summer of 2017 Anyuta's concept "The Wings of Inspiration" has won the commission to create and construct The Canadian Legend Award statuette.

David Foster became the inaugural recipient of the Canadian College of Performing Arts’ Legend Award on June 30th, 2017. 

The winning concept - Wings of Inspiration.

"I was inspired by the very nature of performing arts - using your body as a messenger (that's why I included stylized human form in the composition) and letting inspiration (Wings) take you high into the skies and let your spirit soar".
