Vancouver’s Public Art - A Moment of Whoa

Whoa. Honestly, that was the first thought that came to mind, when I started researching public art installations for the Art Seen segment on the February 28th Vancouver episode of PIE. While I had a sense that there would be a thriving arts culture in our neighbor to the north, I wasn’t prepared for the sheer number, and diversity, of installations to choose from. This was a good problem to have, and even before I had driven across the border and set foot inside the city, I was already inspired.
Thanks to Yu Hou, our Web Production Intern, for creating the interactive map above, showing the locations of the installations featured in the Vancouver Art Seen segment.
The segment literally only scratches the surface. To find out more about Vancouver’s public art offerings, check out http://vancouver.ca/parks-recreation-culture/public-art.aspx
Be warned…you might experience a moment of whoa.
