Vancouver Observer: Free admission: a look at Vancouver’s public art
Thursday January 20th, 2011
This week Vancouver has been celebrating the developments of upcoming public art projects, like the new Terry Fox sculptures designed by Douglas Coupland that will be installed at BC Place. So we felt it was a great time to talk about the amazing public art that our city already has to offer.
Great cities are built for the people, and Vancouver is no exception. But, when was the last time you went for an art walk – or even stopped to admire a piece of public art in Vancouver? Sculptures, memorials, fountains and graffiti are everywhere, yet if you are not familiar with where to look then how would you even get started?
