Castlegar Sculpturewalk (Castlegar, BC) – Call For Artists

Castlegar Sculpturewalk (Castlegar, BC) – Call For Artists

[Sponsored Listing] Castlegar Sculpturewalk announces a call for artists for their 2022 event, which opens next May. Sculpturewalk is open to professional and amateur sculptors of all backgrounds. One of the premiere arts events in Canada, Sculpturewalk attracts artists and viewers from across the world to the beautiful city of Castlegar, BC, the Sculpture Capital of Canada™.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 31 Oct 2021

Completed sculptures or proposed designs can be submitted. For proposed designs, examples of previous work must be included within the application. Open to art beyond what is traditionally viewed as sculpture (i.e. light installations). All sculptures need to be made of a durable material for the yearlong outdoor setting and constructed with safety in mind for display in a public setting.

Castlegar Sculpturewalk Awards

Each artist accepted to the program will receive an $1000 honorarium, payable upon installation of sculpture.

  • People’s Choice Awards: Winning sculpture purchased for up to $15,000 plus a $2000 cash award, 2nd place $1000, 3rd place $500
  • Artistic Merit Awards: Overall winner $2000, 2nd place $1000, 3rd place $500
  • Voting for the People’s Choice award will take place from May-October

About Castlegar Sculpturewalk

Inspired by, and borne of, local artist Pat Field’s participation in the Sculpturewalk program of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Castlegar Sculpturewalk began in 2010 with just ten sculptures. When Castlegar City Council learned of Sioux Falls’ downtown revitalization initiative tied to the cultural economy, they realized that they faced many of the same downtown revitalization issues and agreed to a trial project.

Incredibly, with community and basin support, and a dedicated group of volunteers, this cautious trial project grew beyond expectations into Castlegar becoming The Sculpture Capital of Canada™. Downtown Castlegar is now one of the few venues in Canada where artists have the opportunity to show and sell outdoor sculptural work, bringing international artists to the community, and supporting emerging local and regional talent.
