[Sponsored Listing] The Oak Bay Parks, Recreation and Culture announces a call for artists for the annual ArtsAlive Public Art Program. Now in its seventh year, the Oak Bay Public Art program, ArtsAlive, is an expression of Oak Bay’s support for a flourishing arts environment for the entire community. Sculptures are selected by a peer jury to be displayed for up to a year at outdoor sites in the District of Oak Bay. They are on temporary loan by the artists who are sponsored by a local business or community group.
Oak Bay Parks, Recreation and Culture has installed outdoor sculptures in a variety of locations around Oak Bay — from stylized realistic pieces to the purely abstract, in various media including static and kinetic sculpture. They have been greatly appreciated for their artistic merit and have challenged viewers to pause and reflect about living in this special seaside community, proud of its distinct heritage even as it contemplates its future as a vibrant place to live and work. The permanent sculptures frame views, animate parks, streetscapes, and viewpoints.
