Public art a powerful force
Wednesday June 18th, 2014
Next time you pass the intersection of 21st and Lonsdale take a moment and look at the new piece of public art situated in the green space just south of the Gordon Smith Gallery.
The art piece, called The Meeting, was created by Chinese sculptor Wang Shugang and is composed of eight life-sized squatting red men grouped in a circle. It’s a beautiful piece of work that stimulates an immediate response from the viewer and has the unique facility of drawing someone in. The Meeting was one of the most photographed pieces of public art in Vancouver’s international sculpture Biennale and now it makes North Vancouver its home for the next two years.
