Cultural Capitals of Canada

If you live in West Vancouver, you probably know that our city has been chosen as a 2006 Cultural Capital by the Cultural Capitals of Canada program.

Celebration and Collaboration

As a result of this distinction West Vancouver is commissioning a sculpture, which will highlight and promote Squamish Nation heritage. The Sculpture Commission, a componant of the Squamish Sculpture Symposium, made a call for submissions from local artists and has now narrowed their decision to three finalists.

The artists have constructed scale models of their proposals, and these models have been on display at various places in West Vancouver over the past few weeks. Beginning today, they are on display at the West Vancouver Museum, where they will remain until Wednesday when the selection committee makes its final decision.

We've posted pictures of the models, but don't miss this opportunity to check out the finalists here at the West Vancouver Museum!

The Sculpture Comission will make its final decision on Wednesday, and there is opportunity for the public to comment on which models they like and why. Don't delay - come to the West Vancouver Museum today and have a look!
