; Fun! Fun! Vancouver!: Biennale

Thursday, 7 January 2010


As part of the public art exhibition known as The Vancouver Biennale, sculptures have been cropping up all over town.

Here we have Artificial Rock #143, which can be found outside the new skytrain station downtown on the corner of Granville Street and Georgia.

"History of Loss" is an eye-catching piece that's situated outside another new Skytrain station, over on King Edward and Cambie. This one is so far my favourite.

And the most recent one that's been causing quite the stir is located out in Richmond. "Miss Mao" features a giant-sized Lenin head made of chrome, with a Chinese acrobat on top, who bears the face of Chairman Mao planted on top of a female body.

If you're visiting Vancouver for the upcoming Olympics, try to check out these art pieces all over the city!
