Had a fantastic afternoon date with my beau on Saturday: it was a gorgeous, sunny, 27 degrees outside, so we decided to get on our bikes, ride the hills of Castlegar, and check out the annual sculpturewalk (or should i say sculptureride?). This yearly event hosts local and international artists’ sculptures that get mounted in public all throughout the downtown area. The event’s tagline describes the dream that we get to live in: “Imagine… a vital downtown with different sculptures displayed every year.” I wanted to share a few photographs from our wonderful afternoon art cruise (but there are a lot of great pieces to acknowledge, so this will be the first of 2 posts).

These incredible public sculptures are like tiny little gems hidden all about my town: tons of fun to discover, so much creativity to admire and such skillful artistry to witness. More to come tomorrow!
