Public Art Program

This Land is a Person by Marianne Nicolson

North Vancouver’s Public Art Program works to create, program and maintain public works of art that are free and accessible to everyone.

Each public art piece is an original, one-of-a-kind work that creatively reflects North Vancouver's unique culture, heritage and natural environment. A distinctive cultural asset, public art provides a deep-rooted sense of place and serves as an artistic legacy for future generations. Public art in North Vancouver is realized through three distinct program streams: civic, developer and community public art.  

With over 150 pieces in the collection, North Vancouver’s public art encompasses all types of media. From eye catching sculptures and mosaics to temporary installations and digital works, public art is a standout feature in civic plazas, municipal buildings and commercial developments throughout the City and District of North Vancouver. Located in parks, along roadways, and integrated along nature trails and greenways, public art helps us celebrate the cultural spirit and identity of our community.
