Vancouver Art Gallery Illuminated by Art at Facade Festival

See the Vancouver Art Gallery Illuminated by Art at Façade Festival

The Vancouver Art Gallery is always full of incredible art and from September 8th to 14th this year, the building itself will become a massive, dynamic artwork.

A partnership between Burrard Arts Foundation and the Vancouver Art Gallery, Façade Festival is a free, outdoor public art project and cultural event. For this festival, a selection of contemporary artists were chosen. The artists created original artworks using technology known as ‘projection mapping’, which turns any object into a canvas for video art.
