L.M. Montgomery Statue
The Resort Municipality of Stanley Bridge, Hope River, Bayview, Cavendish and North Rustico is seeking proposals from qualified individuals/ firms to provide for the elaboration and fabrication of a bronze statue of L. M. Montgomery and three cats. The selected firm will undertake the development of detailed design work, fabrication and assist with installation of the statues in the Heritage Park located in the center of historic Cavendish.
The statue design will be prepared in accordance with drawings prepared by artist Grace Curtis, winner of a design competition sponsored by the Resort Municipality.
The goal is to develop a high-quality statue that honours L. M. Montgomery and her legacy in the community along with three cats. The completed figure is intended to cast to a human scale. The desire is to have the public interact with the art and pose for photos with the work.
It is expected that proponents will:
• Enlarge the small-scale design to full-scale,
• Create the necessary molds,
• Create/cast the bronze, and
• Supervise site preparation and installation.
