Public art tours offered in Sechelt

Art lovers are invited to participate in free Public Art Tours in Sechelt. The guided tours focus on segments of the District of Sechelt’s Public Art Collection as well as a few other artworks located in and around the community. Led by Arts Coordinator Siobhan Smith, the tours will give residents and visitors the opportunity to view both new and historic works and learn more about the artists who created them. Whenever possible, the artists will join the tour to answer questions about their work.

The District of Sechelt has been collecting works of art since the 1970s. Two newer acquisitions are now on public display: Gord Halloran’s Hung Jury can be viewed in the municipal offices reception area, and Todd Clark’s stunning oil painting Paradise Found is displayed inside the Sechelt Public Library.

Thursday, September 12 at 11 a.m., join the Outdoor Public Art Tour to view work in the Spirit Square Sculpture Garden, as well as a shíshálh totem pole, the new murals at the Sechelt Skateboard Park, and master carver Dudley Carter’s Sanctuary.

Wednesday, September 26 at 1 p.m. tour the Indoor Art Collection at the District of Sechelt municipal offices, including works by eight local artists.

Tours are free, but limited to 10 people per tour. To reserve, please contact Siobhan Smith at 604-989-0804 or email
