Discover Orangeville’s growing collection of public art.
In addition to its collection of over 50 tree sculptures, other pieces of public art contribute to the artistic vibe in Orangeville. The Mantis Queen, located in front of the Visitor Information Centre, is a large-scale sculpture created by award-winning artist Ron Baird. Standing at seven metres and weighing one ton, the interactive sculpture has a commanding presence with arms that spin and rotate in the breeze. It, along with many other impressive sculptures around town, add to the magnitude of Orangeville’s creative sector.
On a smaller scale, local artists have transformed functional utility boxes into colourful works of art through the Utility Box Art Display Program. Seventeen boxes, located throughout Orangeville, have been added to the program since it began in 2016.
