North Vancouver District Mayor and artists Cheryl Hamilton and Michael Vandermeer at Princess Park for the unveiling of a new public artwork, Mirare. Mirare depicts the life cycle of the tree, reflecting nature’s ongoing organic transformation of matter into energy. The sculpture is placed as a sentinel at the forest’s edge, inviting us to venture into nature with respect and reverence. The artists will speak briefly about their work to give it context.

Mirare is the District of North Vancouver’s contribution to the Necklace Project, Illuminating Communities, an inter-municipal collaboration for public art involving ten municipalities throughout Metro Vancouver.



Moving Up

Join District of North Vancouver Mayor Richard Walton and artist Karen Kazmer for the unveiling of Moving Up, a new Public Art sculpture along the Spirit Trail.

Moving Up reflects on the ways that urban animals and people adapt to their environment. Having provided the gnawed branches for the cast elements within the sculpture, the beavers from nearby Mackay Pond can be seen as co-creators of this artwork that portrays the convergence between nature, local housing, and industry.

Moving Up is one of several public artworks that can be found on the Spirit Trail.
