Events Description

 

The artwork of six local artists light up downtown Vancouver this winter in a lantern exhibition
What does family mean to you? Six local artists explore their connections to loved ones through a lantern exhibition, weaving colours and familiar shapes to express from the heart in the ways they know best.
See the dazzling Lantern City in downtown Vancouver this winter from Feb 11 – 23.

To echo the project’s artistic vision of “Family is everything “ with our festival partner, LunarFest Vancouver, LGBTQ2S+ artist Kent-Chan Kusalik, will be featured for the first time alongside Filipino-Canadian artists Mayo Landicho and Bert Monterona, and returning Squamish artist Cory Douglas, as all of them will join the Lantern City family. “Lunar New Year in Vancouver isn’t just a celebration of an Asian tradition; it is an opportunity to bring our communities together regardless of who you are. Only until we accept the importance of treating everyone as part of a big family, can our city truly celebrate our diversity as the city’s strength and vibrancy,” said Charlie Wu, the General Manager of The Society of We Are Canadians Too.
