Last Chance to Sponsor a Sculpture and join the Sculpture Capital of Canada team

The Annual General Meeting for Castlegar's Sculpturewalk takes place tomorrow at 4:30 p.m..

  • Apr. 20, 2015 3:00 p.m.

Preparations are in full force for the May 9th opening of Castlegar Sculpturewalk 2015. Featuring 32 artists from Castlegar to Australia, this will be Sculpturewalk’s first truly global showcase of outdoor sculptural art, and the anticipation is running high. If you or your company would like to join the Sculpturewalk supporter team, now is the time!

Sculpture sponsorships are $1000 annually (businesses/individuals can partner to sponsor a piece). Sponsors are featured on the sculpture’s nameplate, on the brochure and website, and at all Sculpturewalk events, including the Opening Gala on May 9th and the Awards Gala in November. Sculpturewalk is a registered charity, and sponsors are entitled to a charitable receipt for their support.

Now in its sixth year, Sculpturewalk has gained national attention, though at its heart it is a community project, – one that Castlegar and area residents take great pride in. “Local support has been a huge factor in our success,” says Executive Director Joy Barrett. “We have over twenty-five individuals and businesses who have been sponsoring pieces each year, helping to pay for the installation, shipping and cost for each sculpture. We’d love to see some new supporters on board, working with us to promote & support public art in this beautiful city.”

For more information about this opportunity, please contact Joy Barrett, Sculpturewalk Executive Director (Email: joy@castlegarsculpturewalk.com).
