Public Art: 7th Street Mural
Check out our new mural on 7th Street, next door to Slow Fox Chili Parlor! SWIPE RIGHT to see the before and after! This mural activates a building that has been boarded up for approximately 40 years. VDA chose this project site to help promote connectivity between districts and to draw additional traffic to this blossoming block.
Conceptualized by local artist Jane Degenhardt, “More Than Meets The Eye,” brings the observer out of the urban environment and into nature.
“Wandering through the Pacific Northwest understory, the forest floor becomes a way of experiencing nature intimately. Mosses, mushrooms and other small organisms invite us to dwell for a time in a state of wonder. All it requires is attentiveness. Under the quiet cathedral of trees, I see how nature echoes my own emotional, intellectual and spiritual experience. My paintings are an invitation to take a closer look at our human relationship to the natural world.”
This art installation is made possible by the support of Vancouver’s Downtown Association and International Graphics & Nameplate. Thank you to our video producer Casey Evans Media, for capturing the process.
