The Okanagan Thompson International Sculpture Symposium (OTISS) was organized by bronze sculptor Jock Hildebrand in 2002 who wanted to provide educational, tourism, and cultural benefits to the community by bringing professional sculptors to the region. Eleven international sculptors and ten Canadian sculptors were invited to the Thompson Okanagan region to create permanent public sculptures in one of the nine host communities: Kelowna, Kamloops, Vernon, Penticton, Summerland, Osoyoos, Westbank, Lake Country and the seven First Nations bands in the Okanagan Nation Alliance. The project ran for over 100 days in BC.
