The opportunity to suggest words to be etched on the exterior of the sculpture is now closed. Thank you to everyone who suggested their word through shapeyourcitypenticton.ca or to the artist in person during one of the events on March 28 and 29. The complete list of words is provided below. You can see snapshots from the events on this page. The words are also on display at City Hall.

Change in process

We had originally planned to invite registered members to vote for their favorites but because the words will be translated, it needs to be a more collaborative process between the artist and the translators. This means that you won't see which words were selected until the sculpture is unveiled the second weekend in May.
