Bold public art combines natural history with modern culture
Thursday March 26th, 2015
A new public art display blending car culture with environmental history is coming to Downtown Vancouver. The “Trans Am Totem” artistically combines consumer culture with ancient Vancouver history by stacking a pile of junkyard cars on top of a 20 feet high old growth cedar tree. North Vancouver artist Marcus Bowcott describes the piece as a “meditation on contemporary technological culture” while relating it to the history of the False Creek region.
