A year long public art project in collaboration between the Langley Arts Council and the Langley Horse Federation is now on display at the Willowbrook Shopping Centre. Visit the Horseshoe Trail between January 14 and February 3 to view the many horses which have been transformed into brilliant works of art by local artists. The goal of the project was to “use art to enhance the community’s agricultural heritage and to acknowledge Langley as the Horse Capital of BC”. Willowbrook Shopping Centre is holding a number of events in conjunction with the exhibit including a Horsing Around Kids Party on January 19, Meet the Artists Days on January 26 and February 2, as well as offering a contest with the chance to win a $1,000+ Horsing Around Langley activity package including horse riding lessons, dining, entertainment, shopping, and more.
