Vancouver’s Public Art Program seeks to incorporate contemporary art practices into city planning and development. The Program funds art-making of many kinds, from single-artist commissions to artist collaborations with engineers, designers, and communities. The Program intent is to provide for the creation of art that express the spirit, values, visions, and poetry of place that collectively define Vancouver.
