2019 Castlegar Sculpturewalk pieces available for purchase or lease

If you have fallen in love with one of last year’s Sculpturewalk sculptures, now is the time to act.

New sculptures will be going up in the spring, and the opportunity to lease or buy the works of art currently on display will be over.

Sculpturewalk executive director Joy Barrett says five sculptures have already sold and many more are heading off to new homes.

“Businesses find this is a great way to draw attention to their establishments, and with this support, we’ve seen public art here boom, with over 60 pieces currently showing in the city,” said Barrett.

“Castlegar has definitely earned the title Sculpture Capital of Canada.”

Sales and leasing help the Sculpturewalk program by directly supporting the artists, generating operating income for the organization and increasing public art throughout the region.
