Granville Island has been working with the team from Vancouver Mural Festival to bring together 10 artists to create new murals that will transform our newest public space, the Chain and Forge, into a vibrant outdoor art gallery. Located in the center of Granville Island, these large-scale art works will be free and accessible for everyone to view and enjoy.
At the heart of the installation, painted on the pillars of the Granville Street Bridge, will be a monumental work of art designed by Musqueam artist Debra Sparrow. Other participating artists include Ruben Sanchez, an international artist visiting from Spain, and local artists, Sandeep Johal, JNasty, James Harry, Lauren Brevner, Eric Louie, Kari Kristensen, Victoria Sieczka, and KC Hall.
Starting May 1st, artists will be onsite painting throughout the day. Come down and watch as the murals gradually emerge, transforming blank walls into pieces of art.
