Castlegar Sculpturewalk is now accepting applicants from sculptors (national and international) to take part in our 2015 event. The application deadline is October 31, 2015. Next year’s Opening Gala & installation day will take place on May 14th, 2016.
Now in its sixth successful year, Sculpturewalk is a year-long outdoor exhibit of original sculpture by local and international artists. 2015’s program featured 32 pieces on its outdoor walking tour. The sculptures are owned by the artists and loaned to the exhibit, where they are available for purchase, lease, and are open for public voting. There is a total of $25,000 in prizes available, which includes the purchase of the People’s Choice winner by The City of Castlegar for permanent display.
Travel/shipping costs up to $500 per artist are covered by Sculpturewalk, in addition to hotel accommodation for the installation/opening and awards gala.
