The Vancouver Visual Art Foundation is excited to partner with the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association (DVBIA) to bring you the new summer program Art Downtown.
Due to Covid-19 we have been exploring new ways to support our artists and safely involve the community in the arts, which we hope we can achieve through Art Downtown. The program will consist of artists creating and showcasing their artwork to the public every Wednesday at Lot 19 and every Friday at Cathedral Square from 11AM – 2PM. The program will begin on Wednesday 17th June at Lot 19, and will continue every week until September 11th.
We have partnered with the DVBIA on this project because they work to revitalize public spaces in downtown Vancouver through their Placemaking Projects. Their aim is to bring the community together in welcoming and inspiring locations across the city, which is why we are excited to be working with them on Art Downtown. We want to transform the two locations of Lot 19 and Cathedral Square into creative, inspiring and positive areas for the public to connect with art, and where artists can showcase their talent and sell their work. We hope you can join us in supporting all artists.
