North Vancouver is home to over 100 public artworks spread across the North Shore marking gateways, animating streetscapes and integrated into the natural environment. Public art can be found in libraries, along nature trails and public walkways, in parks and shopping plazas. Each piece is an original, one-of-a-kind work that is specifically created to reflect and express North Vancouver's local heritage, culture and environment.
- May 2016 - Over 400 North Vancouver K-12 students submitted street banner designs that reflect the theme "Canada 150 - What Makes Canada Great" as part of the City of North Vancouver street banner program. Thrilled by the quality and diversity of all of the submissions, the judges selected four winning designs and eight honourable mentions.
- The term 'public art' refers to works of art that have been created with the specific intention of being sited or staged in a public space that is accessible to all.
