Castlegar Sculpturewalk voting extended a week

Voting extended on popular outdoor exhibition and a big name is headlining this year's awards gala at Element Club Bar Grill.

2013 Sculpturewalk Gala is Saturday

Voting for the Castlegar Sculpturewalk People’s Choice Award has been extended by one week, until Tuesday, Oct. 8. The sculpture with the most votes will be purchased by the City of Castlegar for its permanent collection, with the winner announced at the 2013 Awards Gala on November 2 at Element Club Bar Grill.

Sculpturewalk is excited to announce the Gala will be headlined by internationally acclaimed talk rocker Shane Koyzcan.

Koyczan rose to international prominence after performing to over 55,000 people at Vancouver’s 2010 Olympics Opening Ceremonies, then taking his dynamic show across the world. Koyczan was the first Canadian to win the prestigious U.S. Poetry Slam Championship and has headlined poetry festivals across Canada.

“Votes are much higher this year, along with interest from both locals and tourists,” said Joy Barrett, executive director of Sculpturewalk in a release. “This is going to be an exciting Gala, and we’re delighted to have Shane perform. It’s a tribute to our success and increased national presence that we can draw such talent.”

Tickets for the performance, starting at 8 p.m., are $25 and available online at www.clubelement.ca or at the Element in downtown Castlegar. Dinner reservations (starting at 5 p.m.) are available by calling 250-365-8066. Awards begin at 7 p.m.
