Adding splashes of colour to the once grey streets in The Gateway has been one of the top mandates of the Gateway Business Improvement Area Society since they began their quest for neighbourhood beautification in 1995. This is why they chose red for the colour of the decorative street lamp posts that they installed in 2000.
The Commotion Sculpture
JUN 24, 2010
In 2010, the Gateway BIA decided that they wanted to do another art installation. It had to be bold and eye-catching, yet visually appealing and accessible to everyone. Ideally, it would be something representative of the people of Prince George, and specifically of those living in the immediate neighbourhood. Being a permanent, outdoor work of art, the sculpture also had to be designed with strength and longevity in mind.
