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.
