Minden Hills Cultural Centre has the largest collection of Andre Lapine works in the world.

Lapine was a painter who lived in Minden Hills.

Director of Community Services Mark Coleman wants a bronze statue to be made to honour the artist.

Coleman says the cultural centre committee wants to complete this project by next year, in time for Canada’s 150th birthday.

He says they discussed this project 8 years ago.

Coleman hopes to have the project finished in 2017
