Nelson buys Flower Power sculpture by Illarion Gallant, MBCSLA

Friday, February 16, 2018

Nelson city council has decided to buy Flower Power, the sculpture by Illarion Gallant situated beside the highway at the entrance to Railtown.

The sculpture, like others located in Nelson’s downtown, was leased for a year after being chosen from 2017’s entries in the Castlegar Sculpturewalk.

The purchase price of $12,500 will come from the downtown waterfront reserve, a fund whose purpose, according to city manager Kevin Cormack, is to enhance the downtown and waterfront. It receives $20,000 from the city each year for the public art purchases.
