The deadline for casting your vote for your favourite piece of public art in this year’s Castlegar Sculpture Walk draws near. September 30 is your last chance to cast your vote, if you have a chance to take a stroll and in-person look through Castlegar’s collection of public artwork for 2016.Voting/ballot boxes are in various locations spread around Castlegar. One is in the city center in front of city hall. Another at the grocery store and another at the railway museum.

Here is a link to the brochure to refer to. Only hard copies of the ballot are accepted for voting.Contact publicartetckaslo@gmail.com if you can’t find any ballots – they may already have been used up, but we can access more if you need one, and couldnt find one in Castlegar.

In 2015 Chris Petersen and Spring Shine from the North Kootenay Lake area entered “Regeneration” (see below), a wonderful and interactive reflection on our past history of forestry. Many who came by had to take a seat inside this hollow stump and enjoy the beautifully finished multi-colored wood interior and feeling of safety that such an enclosure provides.”Regeneration” won the People’s Choice award in 2015, was purchased by the City of Castlegar  and now sits outside city hall there.

This year, Chris Peterson and Spring Shine got together again, now joined by Hans Winter, to create another entry. “Sculpture Walk” is a wonderful mind-twisting walkway which, beyond its own intriguing lines, offers incredible shadows as the sun moves across the sky.
