More Art Scavenger Hunting

Perspective

Just when you think there’s not enough to see and do in downtown Vancouver, especially for those who are event-and-schedule challenged like I am, you find sites like this which give you another reason to wander around outside, even in the sudden June heat: The City of Vancouver Public Art Registry

Whether you’re trying to figure out the story behind all the doorknobs embedded in the pavement at that building on Seymour St, wanted to know why the Vancouver Art Gallery has boats on the roof, or are looking for secret art works you may have passed by a dozen times without noticing, the site is a great resource.

Now the question is whether there’s any public art downtown which isn’t listed. . . .

    there’s some really great stuff in there that I’ve never seen before! also some truly hideous stuff, however…

    for one thing, the arc that you posted in the photo is not listed, but I guess that’s because it’s part of the Biennale. at any rate, there is lots of great public art that was never comissioned officially and so never registered…
