District of Tofino Art Policy & Program

In 2014, the District of Tofino was approached by a group of citizens who encouraged the District to acquire the renowned “Weeping Cedar Woman” as a public art piece. Artist Godfrey Stephens was inspired to carve the “Weeping Cedar Woman” in 1984 to aid the protest against logging ancient rain forests of Clayoquot Sound and Meares Island. The artwork has come to symbolize the defining 1988 victory of the environmentalists to protect the Clayoquot Sound from logging.
