The Hunt is nearly over for Oak Bay Arts Laureate Barbara Adams.
In an August push, she sought $7,000 to ensure the purchase of the deer and wolves sculpture in Queens’ Park.
The Hunt by Ken Hall would be the fourth piece of publicly-owned fine art in Oak Bay.
With donations from residents and businesses since then, the community whittled that number down to $2,o00. “That’s a lot of community support and a few large donations,” Adams said.
The a sculpture features a pack of wolves and a large buck in Queens’ Park. It was among the ArtsAlive 2016 sculptures. A busy artist with installations filling his time, Hall left the loan in place a little longer than usual. It was a close second in the public vote that saw Oak Bay purchase the Acorns at municipal hall that year.
