Have you ever wondered about Rossland history?  Unlike what too many of us older people didn't enjoy in school,  Rossland history is lively and fascinating.  A gold-mining boom-town whose population and building construction exploded between 1895 and 1900, Rossland attracted the riches needed for hard-rock mining and produced a large quantity of high-grade gold ore.  Rossland was dubbed "the Golden City" internationally. Times were fast-paced, action-packed and rowdy.

'V-Formation' -- A New Sculpture Graces Rossland

V-FormationSculpture

On Friday morning, Nelson artist Nathan Smith's interactive sculpture, "V-Formation" came to Rossland and settled into the courtyard beside Mountain Nugget.  The artist accompanied the  flock on its journey. 

The interactive aspect of this sculpture becomes evident when a person turns the bicycle pedal at the front of the installation and the wings of the geese move gracefully up and down; the creaking of the mechanism is reminiscent of the conversation of flying geese.

MELT, THE MOVIE -- BEING CREATED.

See video

Three high school boys from Vancouver are making a movie.  Correction:  three young men who have graduated.  They've been allowed to graduate early to work on this project, and they're busy raising funds for the work.  The introduction video (above) tells a bit about why they're doing it.  It's an ambitious and exciting idea;  I'm looking forward to seeing the 90-minute finished product.
