People's Choice Winners

Each year, the winner of the People's Choice Award is purchased by the City of Castlegar to contribute to Castlegar's permanent Community Collection. This democratic ballot-to-purchase process by the residents of the community has a direct impact on the acquisition of public art in their city. With their voice and their vote, the community has both figurative and literal ownership of the art, and the residents' pride in helping to form their unique and vibrant city is unmistakable.
