The Town of Huntsville is seeking input from the public on the floating sculpture located in the Muskoka River named Pipe Man.
In May of 2016, Huntsville Council approved a design concept for an in-water art sculpture donation, on condition that federal navigable waters (who have jurisdiction of the Muskoka River channel) approved. The approval was granted by the Department of Transport Canada. The donor had the sculpture physically fabricated and placed in the river as per the draft artist’s design presented to council. The sculpture is designed to float in water, only. Following the installation of the sculpture, now known as “Pipe Man”, both negative and positive comments were received by the public on the art installation.
The town has designed a short, three-question survey to engage the public in this matter. All opinions are sought. The information collected will remain anonymous. The survey is available at Huntsville.ca from Thursday June 29, 2017 through August 5, 2017. If anyone wishes a paper copy of the survey, these will be available from Customer Service at both Huntsville Town Hall and the Canada Summit Centre.
It is expected that the consolidated survey results will be presented to the General Committee of Council at their meeting scheduled for Wednesday August 30, 2017 at 9:00 a.m. in the Town of Huntsville Council Chambers, 37 Main Street East, Huntsville, Ontario.
