One of the many works along the Burlington Waterfront Sculpture Trail.

Bringing sculpture into the public realm is the goal of the Burlington Waterfront Sculpture Trail which has now launched its second season.

Featuring more than 30 works by Canadian artists, the art is placed along an accessible trail that links major elements of Burlington’s downtown and waterfront

Sponsored by the Dan Lawrie International Sculpture Collection, the goal is to allow the public the opportunity to view the art in an outdoor setting as well as to promote the artists and have their work seen by a broad audience.

“Things have been very difficult for the world of art during COVID so this gives them an arena to gain exposure and put their works in front of the community and at the same time,” explains Lawrie.

As part of the program, Lawrie and his team work to sell the pieces to drive additional support for the artists.

Along the 1 km path, each work also contains a sign that provides background on the artist as well as their intentions for their art.

The art will be on display through June 2.

Guides are available digitally by following this link. Printed versions are also available at the Art Gallery of Burlington, Joseph Brant Museum, and City Hall.
