Signage Kiosk Animation

Artists in the Capital Region, including the Gulf Islands, were invited to submit up to two suitable existing or new artworks for consideration to be displayed on 10 Signage Kiosks in Victoria.

New artwork is coming to signage kiosks downtown this summer!

Artwork installations from local artists will animate 10 kiosks along Douglas Street and City parkades to celebrate local creatives and enhance everyday artistic encounters.

Over 40 images were reviewed by the project panel and the following finalists were chosen: Lydia Beauregard, Alision Bigg, Bobbie Bjornholt, Claire Gaulin-Brown, Shannon Clayton, Kashif Fatima, Chelsea Falconer, Trevor Husband, Sharon Lam, Mike Lathrop, Amber Lomax, Libby Oliver, Jessie Paterson, Liviu Peicu, Joanne Thomson, June Yeo and Chin Yuen.

The selected works will be shown in two display periods running from August 2020 through to January 2021. This project embodies Create Victoria’s vision “to thrive as a place for everyday artistic encounters.”
