Biennale Hits the Pages of the Vancouver Sun
Tuesday June 23rd, 2009
On June 12, 2009 the Vancouver Sun opened the city’s eyes to the imminent arrival of the Vancouver Biennale 2009-2011. In an excellent article by Randy Shore, the Sun highlighted several aspects of the Biennale, its impact on the city from a cultural and tourism level as well as its connection to local arts communities.
Here’s an excerpt: “In a few weeks, Vancouver Biennale will begin to turn the city’s green spaces and parks into an open-air museum of art. The biannual collaboration between the arts community, the Vancouver Park Board and corporate sponsors will erect 30 sculptures alongside the city’s walking and biking trails, public plazas and on beaches. The Biennale festival runs for two years and includes several large-scale public events. Biennale will present another 60 to 80 new media and light installations during that time.”
