Signage Kiosk Animation
New artwork is popping up in signage kiosks downtown!
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 eight signage kiosks in Victoria.
Artwork installations from local artists are currently in eight 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: Anthony Carr, Gord Gordon, Kashaf Fatima, Victoria Heryet, Jey Yada, Andrea Fritz, Claire Gaulin-Brown, Cei Lynn, Frances Litman, Ty Didmon, Mayumi Nogami, Kate Romain, Julia Spiere, Dallas Segno, Laura Rechwan, Arden Rose, Maureen Steward, Jackie Tahara, Kailie Woods, and Sharon Lam.
The selected works will be shown in three display periods running from February 2021 through to January 2022. This project embodies Create Victoria’s vision “to thrive as a place for everyday artistic encounters.”
