All of the artworks are available for sale or lease. Sculpturewalk 2016 features 31 sculptures from local and international artists. Ballots/maps are located in red ballot boxes along the route (the start of the route is at the Kootenay Market (635 Columbia Avenue), though you can begin the walk from anywhere.

It was sunny and it was warm so nice weather to make a walk through the town center of Castlegar where most of the statues are situated. It's not "breathtaking" but it sure nice to see if you are in town.
