Oak Bay less than $3,000 shy to buy its fourth piece of municipal art

Arts laureate hopes to purchase The Hunt in Queens’ Park

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.
