This summer, the city of Saint John initiated a fantastic public art project to commemorate Canada 150 plus our province’s natural resources and foster a spirit of neighborly friendship and collaboration. Ten fiberglass salmon sculptures each standing over six feet tall and brightly decorated in various river and Provincial themes.
The sculptures are all within easy walking distance in the uptown core and will remain on display until the end of 2017. At that time, they will be auctioned off and the proceeds split between the artists and the Saint John Interaction School of the Performing Arts. Excellent! Both Ryan and Sarah grew up with and enjoyed this wonderful local theater company.
Here is a photo gallery showing the walking map and the 10 sculptures in the order they appear on the map.

Lovely photos, Nelson and what a great idea. Wish I had seen them when I was there this summer. Marg
They just were installed last week Marg. Glad you like them. Of course, they are much more vivid in person.
