Binkley Receives New Public Art Commission for 2018

michael binkley sculptor in stone sculpture vancouver, vancity, public art, commission

I am pleased to announce that I have been awarded the commission to create two sculptures which will adorn the entrance to a new branch of Vancity Savings Credit Union in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Vancity wants to keep you in anticipation, so I cannot divulge exactly what I will be carving. But Michelle and I are giving you a hint in the photo above when we were in Changsha, Hunan, China in 2014. There will be two companion pieces, carved in locally sourced grey granite which will flank the front doors of the new branch.

I’m looking forward to beginning the work. I’ll be posting progress updates here on my blog, so stay tuned!

    A Binkley public artwork in Vancouver has been long overdue. No one has worked harder than you to get this commission; do enjoy creating it as we will enjoy beholding it . . .
