Penticton Public Sculpture Program

Created in 2016, Penticton’s Public Sculpture Exhibition is a year-long outdoor exhibit of original sculptures. The sculptures are owned by the artists and leased by the City of Penticton for one year for public enjoyment. The sculptures are displayed along the Okanagan Lake waterfront, downtown and in the Front Street roundabout.

Six artists were selected to display their works in the 2019 Penticton Public Sculpture Exhibition which will be on display until the end of April 2020. A jury made up of members of the City’s Arts Creative and Cultural Innovations Committee and three community representatives reviewed submissions and chose the following artists and sculptures:

  • Serge Mozhnevsky (Coquitlam, BC) “In Love with the Wind”
  • Lars Baggenstos (Peachland, BC) “Restoration & Resilence”
  • Benjamin C. Mefford (Oregon, USA) “Bolt”
  • Conrad Sarzynick (Powell River, BC) “Resurface”
  • Maggie Wouterloot (Nanaimo, BC) “Cerebrum Digitalis”
  • Nathan Pierce (Missouri, USA) “FireHouse”

The selected artists work with a wide range of media from metal to mosaic to marble and their influences range from social connectedness to the natural beauty of the BC wilderness.

For purchase or lease inquiry, please contact ask@penticton.ca 

General exhibit inquiries can be directed to the Arts, Creative and Cultural Innovations Committee secretary: committees@penticton.ca or 250-490-2406.
