Thank you.

What happened to the japanese wood sculpture (Shinto shrine?) that used to be located next to Crystal Gardens and when does the city plan on bringing it back?

The plaza here looks terrible with nothing in it and the loss of any public art would be a shame.

Thats a good question. It wasn't a Shinto shrine, though. It is a piece of art produced by a local artist who made a number of these several years ago. The artist wanted them located in publicly accessible places, and there are several of them scattered around (Butchart Gdns, UVic etc.). The cool thing about these sculptures is that they include a metal gong that is tuned and makes a wonderful sound when it is whacked.

So who would know what happened to it?......I would guess either the PCC (which owns Crystal Garden), maybe the Aria developer (I'm guessing that they are responsible for the 'development' of the courtyard) or maybe the city of Victoria.

I contacted Martin Segger and he says the sculpture was done by Roy Hamill and that it is owned by the PCC and that they are restoring it.

Victoria’s orca play structure to be removed, making room for Lights of Wonder

Creator of Centennial Square structure says exhibit should not be put in storage

 

https://www.vicnews....ghts-of-wonder/

 

 

Porter won a competition in 2017 put on by the City of Victoria and the Downtown Business Association in which people were invited to submit concepts for a pop-up play feature and they would cover the costs up to $55,000. Disputes over who would pay for the mats that surround the structure ensued.

 

Porter says he’s personally shelled out $40,000 for them.
