Created in 2016, Penticton’s Public Sculpture Exhibition (PPSE) is a year-long outdoor exhibit of original sculptures. The 2018 Exhibit will include six sculptures in total. Five sculptures have already been selected for locations along the Okanagan Lake waterfront and downtown areas. The sixth sculpture will be displayed in the Front Street roundabout. The sculptures are owned by the artists and leased by the City of Penticton. The city is looking for one (1) larger feature sculpture for the Front Street roundabout (intersections of Front Street, Marina Way, Ellis Street and Vancouver Avenue) in Penticton, BC.

Penticton’s 2018 Public Sculpture Exhibition Artist Benefits

Artists will be paid a set lease price of $6,500 for the roundabout sculpture. All sculptures in the exhibition will contain signage identifying the sculpture, recognizing the artist, and listing the contact and sale information. This signage will be consistent throughout Penticton’s 2018 Public Sculpture Exhibition. Signage text will be created in consultation with the artist. Exhibition sculpture and artist information will be highlighted on the City of Penticton webpage and included in a brochure produced and circulated throughout the community. Media advisories will be sent out announcing the selected artist for the exhibition and a grand opening will be arranged.
