Artist Profile

Public Art in Vancouver: Angels Among Lions is the first comprehensive guidebook that explores Vancouver through the eyes of public art.


Featuring more than 500 public art installations, this is the essential guide for tourists, artists, and Vancouver residents alike.  The character of the city is revealed by its public art-what it collectively places on its streets and walls and in its public spaces.


Engaging colour photos and detailed descriptions focus on the historical and cultural context of each art piece, its place in modern art and the artist who created these urban treasures.
Easy-to follow maps take readers to communities and destinations.  Tour the better known and the hidden art installations that are made from every possible medium and include monuments, paintings, murals, tapestries, figurines, First Nations art, relics, busts, fountains, gateways, mosaics, sculptures and reliefs.
