Revelstoke’s newest piece of public art, a bronze sculpture called Bowin’ in the Wind, was installed at its new home at the Visual Arts Centre on Friday, May 20.
Created by sculptor John McKinnon, this stone and bronze artwork was inspired by the way the autumn wind swirls leaves through the air.
This will be formally unveiled on Friday, June 3, at 6:15 pm. It was completed in the late autumn and store throug the inter in Nelson pending the arrival of spring. This piece of art was commissioned by the City, through the Public Art Committee, and was created without a dime of municipal taxpayers’ money. Funding for this project came from the province’s Resort Development Initiative.
