Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

Indigenous Art at YVR

with 2 comments

We were out at the airport yesterday evening. A niece was on her way through, but had a couple of hours layover there while she changed planes. We arranged to meet her in the terminal for dinner.

This gave me a bit more time to look at the art which is installed at the entrance to the domestic arrivals area, in the basement. To find out more about these pieces go to the YVR webpage

The pictures below have all been posted on flickr and can be found there just by clicking on the image.

  2. I am pleased to say that the YVR web page has been updated, and now has more information about these pieces. I have changed the post to reflect that: it’s worth clicking on the link to read more.
