New Westminster Secondary CANstruction Project

Since the beginning of North America, the Aboriginal culture has impacted Vancouver in several amazing ways.  With our sculpture, we are combining history and the core of Vancouver.  We did this by representing the Aboriginal culture through the art that has enlightened our city, but also adding a flare of Vancouver by showcasing the amazing sculptures that are placed within our city.  In our particular 'CANstruction' model, we have imbedded the Aboriginal whale art with the raindrop sculpture in downtown Vancouver to provide our spectators with the 'old and the new' of Vancouver.  Together the two scenes represent the essence of Vancouver!  Aboriginal art has been at the heart of the British Columbia's Heritage, and the Rain drop is a representation of Vancouver.  Morphing the two core elements, reminds us of how fortunate we are to live in such a culturally rich and diverse city.  We must remember those who are less fortunate and who have a constant struggle with poverty.  Our structure, made primarily from good "fish" protein will provide nutrition for those who are in need.

The display is open to the Public on Monday March 26th to Wednesday April 4th from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the HSBC Pendulum Gallery, downtown Vancouver.
