What is the Downtown Haliburton Sculpture Exhibition?
It’s a seasonal outdoor exhibition running from June 20th to October 31. Five permanent bases (granite slabs) have been installed on the main street of the Haliburton Village. Sculptures will be installed in these select locations. A jury appointed by the Downtown Haliburton Sculpture Project will select up to 5 entries for exhibition.

The criteria for the selection of the artworks include: aesthetic appeal, quality, durability, innovation and originality.

The village of Haliburton is centrally located in Ontario, in what many know as “cottage country”, a 2 ½ – 3 hour drive north of Toronto.

The community’s commitment to art and culture, and its reputation to inspire and engage the public with art draws thousands of visitors from across Canada, United States and abroad.
