Someone stuck googly eyes on the Revelstoke sturgeon and kokanee sculptures on Mackenzie Avenue on around July 15.

Revelstoke sturgeons get googly

The expressions on their faces tell the story. Shock. Horror. Surprise. Drunk. Morose. Vacant. Dilated. Wall-eyed. Kind of goofy-looking.

The expressions on their faces tell the story. Shock. Horror. Surprise. Drunk. Morose. Vacant. Dilated. Wall-eyed. Kind of goofy-looking.

In a pre-planned operation in the past couple of days, somebody stuck googly eyes on Revelstoke sturgeon and Kokanee sculptures on Mackenzie Avenue. All of them.

The googly-ers planned ahead, bringing larger eyes for the two sturgeons.

Zuzana, a waitress at Main Street Cafe, hadn’t noticed the stick-on eyes, despite passing them back and forth while working on the nearby patio.

Do the fish look better with or without the goggly eyes? She had mixed feelings. “More crazy,” Zuzana said. “It looks funny, but it belongs to the artist.”

Are they permanent? No. I checked, and the adhesive-backed eyes peel off easily.

So, go get your photos taken with the googly-eyed sculptures before they get plucked off.

What do you think? Do the sculptures look better with or without the googly eyes? Should the googly eyes be super-glued on permanently? Leave your comment below.
