After the ‘risky business’ with Ai Weiwei’s installation, I headed towards Alberni Street, walking up Bute (in Vancouver.) More art surprises awaited me.
The medallions (not manhole covers, as I originally thought) are by Susan A. Point, a Coast Salish artist from British Columbia. Susan Point works in all media: from fine art prints to stained glass windows to House Posts and Welcome Figures….there are many images to enjoy on her website.
It took a bit of research to find out about these artworks. Vancouver has a Public Art Registry, which is amazing in its scope. Imagine living in a city that values public art, AND keeps track of it. (sigh)
