Take this unique walk downtown Castlegar and explore these amazing sculptures close up. In its third year there are 30 new masterpieces to view. Some of the pieces you will see are by local artists and others have travelled from faraway places such as Toronto and California. Residents of Castlegar are encouraged to fill in a ballot and vote for their favorite sculpture and the winner is purchased by the City of Castlegar to be a permanent fixture in our fine city. The previous People’s Choice winners (2011’s winner, Linotype Wapiti, by Carl Sean McMahon and 2010’s winner, Peace Sign, by Denis Kleine) are being installed at the West Kootenay Regional Airport for permanent display, welcoming both locals and visitors into Castlegar, Sculpture Capital of B.C.
