One month left to vote in Sculpturewalk

Have you seen them all yet? September is the final month to vote in the Sculpturewalk program in Castlegar.

If you haven’t already done so, it’s time to put on your Sculpturewalking shoes and vote for your favourite sculpture in Castlegar Sculpturewalk 2013. September is the last month to tell us your choice for the People’s Choice Award, the winner of which will be purchased for the permanent collection.

“Votes are definitely up this year,” said Sculpturewalk President Kirk Duff. “It’s wonderful to see the increase in support from the community and the interest Sculpturewalk has garnered from across the region, if not the country. MLA Coralee Oakes, the newly appointed Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, recently sang the praises of Castlegar Sculpturewalk in The Globe & Mail. I’m proud that we’ve helped to put Castlegar on Canada’s cultural map, and am looking forward to being a part of our future growth.”

Ballots are available along the Sculpturewalk route, or at City Hall, the Chamber of Commerce and the Kootenay Gallery.

Thanks again to all of the volunteers who helped get things set up.
