boy Roland Growth

Growth, by local artist boy Roland, was selected in 2017 to become the new award distributed to recipients at the annual Thunder Bay Arts & Heritage Awards for two consecutive years of ceremonies. The design features a porcelain hand with a piece of amethyst set in the palm and mounted on a wooden base, representing the continued development and vibrancy of Thunder Bay's cultural sector.

"I'm excited to have my design play such a special role in honouring the many deserving award recipients throughout Thunder Bay. Hopefully, my design will serve as a reminder for all the recipients of their achievements far into the future." - boy Roland

The design for Growth was selected through open competition administered by the City's Recreation and Culture Division and Public Art Committee. Growth was unveiled at the 7th Annual Thunder Bay Arts & Heritage Awards on February 16, 2017.
