Thirty-two new sculptures have landed in Castlegar’s downtown. Castlegar Sculpturewalk is now in its fifth year and making waves across the country, attracting artists from as far away as Belgium.

“I think the public will be delighted with the sculptures on display this year” says Executive Director Joy Barrett.

“With Sculpturewalk’s reputation growing, we’re receiving applications from artists further afield.

It’s exciting to see the international attention given to our local artists, and the diversity of the new artists’ work in this year’s Sculpturewalk.”

Each year, the viewing public votes for their favourite sculpture for the People’s Choice Award and the winning sculpture is bought by the City to stay in its permanent collection. To date, thanks to the People’s Choice Award and Sculpturewalk’s Sales & Leasing program, Castlegar is now home to over 50 sculptures.
