The City of Penticton is looking for sculptors wanting to take part in the city’s second public sculpture exhibition.

Created in 2016, Penticton’s public sculpture exhibition is a year-long outdoor exhibit of original sculptures. The sculptures are owned by the artists and leased by the city for one year and displayed along the Okanagan Lake waterfront, downtown and in the Front Street roundabout.

“We are thrilled to have the program continue to next year after it being so successful in its first year,” said Lori Mullin, recreation and culture manager.
