Cedar Art Bench Public Art

In 2013, to celebrate its 25th anniversary Malaspina Art Society initiated the Cedar Art Bench Public Art project to provide 25 cedar benches built locally by Jackson Cedar. The benches will be installed on Marine Avenue and at the following sites in the Powell River areas:

Lang Bay ~ Texada Island ~ Westview  ~ Townsite

Cranberry ~ Wildwood ~ Lund

The back rest panel on each bench is carved or painted by a Powell River  artist with each bench having a metal engraved plaque with the name of the sponsoring business, the artist, Malaspina Art Society, and the date.

This project was made possible by the hard work of MAS members along with the generous support of local businesses, the Arts Council, the City of Powell River and the Powell River Community Foundation.

Where to find them? Link to the Google map here and roll over the images below for artist name and locations. For full list of benches and information addresses on printable document, click here.
