- Love is…
Discover a picture perfect setting for love at 1145 Robson Street. Designed by Jaleh from JEvents Planning & Design, this fun photo op is perfect for you and your special Valentine! Also nestled in this spot is a mailbox full of love notes for you to take and share with your loved ones.
*no longer available, but we would like to highlight the beautiful work of JEvents Planning and Design with the image and description below.
Love blooms with time and care. Our colourful Bloom piece was once beautifully blooming in the bus shelter on the corner of Robson x Thurlow Street (next to Banana Republic).
Our Up! installation reminds us to Love Others Very Eagerly. You can visit this piece at the Blue Horizon Hotel, located at 1225 Robson Street.
- Butterfly Kiss Mural
Created by Coast Salish artist, Ovila Mailhot, Butterfly Kiss can be found at 1046 Robson Street. The butterfly is a symbol of growth and beauty and undergoes many changes throughout its lifespan before showing its true beauty and colour.
- Flower Crown Mural
While we celebrate love this month, we also honour Black History Month. We were fortunate to collaborate with artist, Ejiwa Ebenebe a.k.a Edge, and have her “Flower Crown’ mural displayed at 1168 Robson Street. This piece celebrates Black tranquility, happiness and presence.
