Richmond’s Public Art collection boasts more than 150 permanent public artworks, numerous temporary installations and even ephemeral, experiential works by local, regional, national and international artists. In addition to large public art installations, the Public Art Program commissions artists to design art wraps for utility cabinets and to place large illuminated two-dimensional artwork along No. 3 -Road, under the Canada Line.
Recently, a series of four artist-designed manhole covers that celebrate Richmond’s cultural heritage have been installed throughout the City to enhance the community’s street experience. Watch for these underfoot along No. 3 Road in the City Centre and in Steveston Village.
Details on the art collection, guides and brochures plus a series of 10-minute walking tours in the City Centre are available online for those interested in learning more. Free.
