The location of new public art for downtown Vernon has been revealed.

The winding mosaic river will be inlayed into the sidewalk on the east side of 30th Street across from the Greyhound.

“The art work signifying the cycle of water is the design of Gabrielle Strong,” states a release from North Okanagan RespectFest.

Strong will work with various groups, youth and the public to create the participatory public art piece.

The art piece has been funded by the Downtown Vernon Association, the City of Vernon, and the federal government.

The art will be featured during RespectFest, which runs from Sept. 18 to 24.
