Where Land and Water Meet

An exhibition of art and historical photographs exploring the water's edge

In the TK Gallery

October 3 2014 - January 11 2015

Humans have been drawn to the places where land and water meet since time immemorial. Coastal landscapes are places of beauty and contemplation. Shorelines are rich in biodiversity and support our livelihoods. In coastal cities like Vancouver, the waterfront today is shaped by industry, development, transportation, and shipping. We swim, play, dive, paddle and sail along its edges. Our relationship with the waterfront is complex and ever present. 

This exhibition of contemporary artwork by local artists and historial photographs from the Maritime Museum’s collection invites you to explore these themes. What does Vancouver’s waterfront mean to you?
