Sculptor John McKinnon poses with his new work “Blowing in the Wind” outside the Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre.

The sculpture consists of dozens of cast bronze leaves shaped and welded together to appear as if they’re spiralling upward towards the sky. The sculpture sits in the centre of the gallery’s new garden and anchors the centre’s recent outdoor revitilisation work.

McKinnon finished the sculpture in the fall, but didn’t install it until last Friday, May 20. A public unveiling will take place on Friday, June 3, before the opening of the gallery’s next exhibit.

Check out photos of the sculpture in our gallery below.
