Lumiere Vancouver

Lumière Vancouver returns next month for its seventh edition, extended this year to 3 1/2 weeks, in two locations: Jim Deva Plaza and English Bay (at Beach Avenue and Davie Street). The extension of the event dates this year has been put in place to ensure that visitors can enjoy the artwork without creating a crowd situation, therefore allowing for proper physical distancing precautions.

Seven interactive art installations are part of the free, fun event inspired by light, art and creative expression. Inspired by BC’s wildlife, Luna, Stanley, Eugenia and Davie will all return to show off their beauty for all to admire.–fUibGYvF/

Luna, created by MK Illumination, returns for its fifth year to grace the shores of English Bay. Produced with over 6,000 white LED environmentally-friendly bulbs, Luna measures seven meters long by 2.5 meters high.

The gorgeous illuminated whale is named in honour of the well-known orphaned orca that inhabited the waters of Nootka Sound from 2001 to 2006.

This year, a new installation, Prismatica, will debut at Lumière. Created by RAW Design, Prismatica is a garden of colourful giant prisms that you can walk through and see city life through every colour of the spectrum.

In addition, there are lots of activities planned during the festival throughout the West End. Dress warmly, bring your camera and enjoy these glowing, stunning pieces of art as they come to life at night. Select installations will remain for the balance of the winter season to be enjoyed nightly.
