There’s even more to see along Penticton’s Okanagan Lake boardwalk than picturesque views of Penticton and the lake these days.

The city recently installed the seven newest additions to its collection of public sculptures, adding some artistic interest to an already scenic walk along the Okanagan Lake shoreline.

Manager of Recreation, Arts & Culture Kelsey Johnson says seven new art pieces have been included in a map of the city’s existing sculptures, now including sculptures in the Penticton Regional Hospital walk.

The city has a virtual tour available on its website that a user can log into on their phone. The website will locate each piece of artwork, and when clicked on the user can get information on the art piece and the artist who created it.

Kelsey says seven new pieces have been added to the collection this year, five of which can be seen along the Okanagan Lake boardwalk. A sixth piece is located at the Ellis Street roundabout, and a seventh piece is showing outside of city hall.

Kelsey says the pieces, which the city began exhibiting last week, will be on display until next April.
