Another sculpture needed

A second round of submissions for the annual Penticton Public Sculpture Exhibition has been announced, with the city looking for art with requirements specific to the location on the Front Street roundabout. 

"I dream of living in a Penticton where public art creates an increasing sense of place," said Robin Robertson, chair of the Arts, Creative and Cultural Innovation Committee. "Where public art is part of our lived experience when we walk, ride or drive."

The call for submissions for the 2018 exhibit was originally announced in October with a December deadline. For this round, a jury made up of members of the sculpture committee and community representatives are seeking pieces that work uniquely at the Front Street location.

Six sculptures total will be chosen for the spots stretching from the roundabout up to the final location near the S.S. Sicamous. Five have already been selected.

The deadline for this new round is April 15, which is when removal of the 2017 sculptures and installation of this years' will begin.
