Oak Bay’s Arts Alive website is now updated with all 2020 sculptures and artists.
The outdoor arts exhibition started in Oak Bay in 2015 and there are 10 sculptures around town in places such as McNeill Bay, Estevan Village, Oak Bay Village, Willows Beach and the Monterey Centre.
“This year’s was delayed because of COVID-19 but we are excited about it,” Oak Bay Arts Laureate Barbara Adams said.
Each sculpture and artist has a biography on the Oak Bay website with short audio segments that make for an integrative, guided walking tour. Sculptures are available to purchase and range in price up to $18,000.
Voting is already underway at oakbay.ca/parks-recreation/arts-culture/artsalive.
