The eight sculptures in the Canada Garden have been loaned for a two-year period to the Canadian Museum of Civilization by the Canada Council Art Bank, which celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2002. The Art Bank has the world's largest collection of contemporary Canadian art, with some 18,000 works in its collection.

The presentation of the sculptures in the Canada Garden is a joint initiative between the Art Bank and the CMC. The works were selected from the Art Bank's collection by Museum staff. They are representative of sculptures from across Canada and include a variety of styles, ranging from the abstract works of Robert Murray from British Columbia to the curvilinear fibreglass shapes of Ed Zelenak from Ontario.
