VAG hosts offsite art

There are lots of opportunities to see public art in Vancouver, including the inconspicuously located Vancouver Art Gallery Offsite location.
Situated in a rather dark area of West Georgia Street, surrounded by office towers, this exhibit brings light to the passerby who can stop and appreciate the modern installations that crop up here. The exhibit changes twice a year.
Currently, local artist Khan Lee has grown a small field of filtered light prairie grass that move through the Offsite pool giving viewers an opportunity to “visualize the wind” as the press release states. Like prairie grass, some of these folded plastic structures had become toppled and bent by the time I viewed them; however, that’s part of the organic nature of the exhibit. The exhibit is called Red, Green and Blue for the coloured lights in each bobbing cone.
The exhibit runs until April 17.

Where: Vancouver Art Gallery Offsite, 1128 W Georgia St., Vancouver
When: Until April 17
Cost: Free
