Heron statue locations panned

The future location of the Heron’s Landing sculpture came into question on Monday.

The future location of the Heron’s Landing sculpture came into question on Monday when local blogger Claos Schunke presented a letter he had written.

Schunke called the three locations (which have been posted online) as being “unimaginative clustered locations.”

The instillation of the sculpture was also questioned when Schunke pointed out that it ways nearly one ton and is top heavy.

“The three images show in the Nelson Post — the heron just stuck into the ground are simplistically misleading: an uncomfortable sign of the [Cultural Development Commission’s] less than thorough preparation of this presentation of no-choice choices,” he read.

Councillor Donna Macdonald — who is part of the Cultural Development Commission — responded to Schunke by saying that the locations were chosen in consultation with the public works supervisor and she saw no problems.
