Preparations are in full force for the May opening of Castlegar Sculpturewalk 2021, and it’s going to be another great year in The Sculpture Capital of Canada™! Join our team and support this much-loved community event through our popular sculpture sponsorship program, supported by over thirty local businesses, organizations and individuals.

“Despite Covid, we were fortunate to be able to continue with our program in 2020, and we’re looking forward to a dynamic 2021 season,” says Sculpturewalk Executive Director Joy Barrett. “So many arts and culture events and festivals have been forced to cancel, but because we’re a self-guided outdoor program that can easily accommodate safety regulations, we’re able to continue to offer a much-needed attraction for the community. Despite the anticipated downturn in international visitors last year, we actually saw a significant increase in regional visitors who were looking for a safe and enjoyable outdoor pursuit.”

“Now, more than ever, it’s also vitally important that we continue to offer our artists financial support to support their livelihoods through this difficult time. Our sponsors help to pay for the installation, shipping and other costs for each sculpture, and we couldn’t do it without them. Their vision and commitment have enabled the program to bring over two hundred works of art to Castlegar, increase our permanent public art exponentially, and has helped discover emerging, home-grown talent and welcomed established artists from further afield.”

Offering a variety of sponsorship tiers (Platinum, Titanium, Gold or Garden), your support level can be chosen to complement your business needs. Tiered benefits include choice of sculpture location within the Sculpturewalk route, the option to share the sponsorship with another business, a variety of print and social media advertising/promotion options, framed posters of the sponsored sculpture with company logo, etc. Our comprehensive brochure/booklet, with detailed information on the artist, sculptures and area, has been a big hit, and due to demand is widely circulated throughout the region.

Entering its eleventh year, Sculpturewalk is Trip Advisor™’s most reviewed and highest rated local attraction, ranking in the top 10% of all attractions in the entire Kootenay Rockies Region, and is recognized nationally and internationally as an innovative and successful public art program.

Sculpturewalk is at heart a community project – one that residents of Castlegar and the surrounding regions take great pride in. Now is the perfect time for your business to get involved in sponsorship and partner with Castlegar Sculpturewalk.
