Public Art Exhibit | Arts Alive 2016 Oak Bay

My cat sculpture, titled Meditation, has been selected for the municipality of Oak Bay’s Arts Alive sculpture program for 2016-2017. This annual public art exhibit features 13 sculptures situated around the municipality for one year. Sculptures were reviewed by a jury comprised of art professionals and citizen art enthusiasts. My sculpture has been installed in Estevan Village and will be there from late May 2016 until May 2017.

2016 Theme: Looking Forward

In response to the theme Looking Forward, I submitted the following, “The sitting cat sculpture rests in a meditative pose, reflecting quietly. To prepare ourselves for looking forward, we must first look inward.”

Public Art Exhibit People’s Choice Award

The public is invited to vote on a People’s Choice Award. The winning piece will be considered for eventual purchase and inclusion in Oak Bay’s permanent public art collection pending municipal budget approvals.

If you’re visiting Victoria within the coming year, be sure to download the map of installed sculptures and enjoy your own walking tour. Read the press in the Victoria Times-Colonist newspaper, Oak Bay goes nuts for public sculpture.
