Cultural development officer Joy Barrett outlined public art in Nelson for a recent Canadian Federation of University Women meeting.

Joy Barrett, the City of Nelson’s cultural development officer, gave a fascinating slide presentation at a recent meeting of the Canadian Federation of University Women, Nelson and District.

She shared pictures of new artwork around Nelson. One only needs to look at railings, unique bike racks, sidewalk sculptures, and hydro utility boxes to see that arts and culture is alive and well in Nelson. Barrett spoke passionately about the collaborative effort between the City of Nelson and the artistic community.

Tourists and locals may one day have smartphone access to historical and biographical information regarding the city’s artwork. Members of the Nelson and District CFUW support Nelson’s arts and culture scene in various ways. The club particularly appreciated Barrett’s final slide: “The EARTH without ART is just EH!”
