Two hundred images have been stenciled onto the asphalt along three kilometres of the Green Necklace Pathway that surrounds the City of North Vancouver. The images borrow from the familiar vernacular of figures in circles that are commonly seen on pavement and street signage. But these figures are playful and diverse departures from the expected, a series of mini narratives along the route that create a quality of whimsy and delight for the entire community to enjoy. People will come across these whimsical images as they walk, run or cycle along the path.

About the artist:
As an artist specializing in site-specific public art projects, Weinberg is driven by the belief that art has the potential to make us more present and engaged in our world. Born in London, England, she moved to Vancouver in 1987 and graduated from Emily Carr University in 1994. Since that time her work has been exhibited across Canada and internationally. Her art practice explores the vital connections between the natural environment and the places where we live, our personal memories, and our collective civic and cultural stories.
“My hope is that my work will help the viewer become re-enchanted by the truly marvelous in the everyday.”
- Mia Weinberg
