How The Art Was Selected

In early 2008, a Request for Art Proposals was placed on various art sites in British Columbia and around the world, based upon the theme and mission statement.

Over 150 artists expressed interest in getting involved with this project, and from that group, a shortlist was determined in Summer 2008.

The art juries, which consist of art curators, representatives from the city, well-known artists as well as corporate and provincial representatives, came together to decide on the proposed concepts by interviewing and viewing prototypes in person.

Final selections for these art pieces was completed in early fall 2008, and the artists began to develop their concepts for application on the site. Installation of the artwork began in 2009 and was completed in April 2010.
