Up Here Urban Art and Music Festival, which takes place Aug. 16-18 this year, is mostly known for the murals it's commissioned around the downtown.

But this year the festival is also commissioning a permanent sculpture.

Graffiti sculptor KWEST and Manitoulin Island-based metal fabricator One KWE have been hard at work collaborating on the creation of a stunning large-scale sculptural piece that will find a permanent home in downtown Sudbury, said a press release from Up Here organizers. 

The sculpture will be installed on the greenway next to the tracks at the McEwen School of Architecture.

“Thanks to Laurentian University and the Ontario Arts Council, we are excited to add an impressive first sculptural piece to downtown Sudbury’s growing urban art gallery,” said the press release.

The piece, called “Between Lines,” will reflect the history and impact of trains on Sudbury.
