The Polygon Gallery Has Its Exterior Wrapped In A Dazzling Light Show

The blinking, multi-coloured LED lights on the exterior façade of The Polygon Gallery are a public artwork by BC artist Kevin Schmidt.

Titled Reckless, the lights are timed to a soundtrack composed by Schmidt. It’s based on the 1984 album of the same name by Canadian singer-songwriter and former North Vancouver resident Bryan Adams.


This display is perfect to check out during a night out around town with a warm drink in your hand.

Schmidt’s soundtrack can be heard on the building’s outdoor speakers, or by tuning in to 87.8 on FM radio.

This site-specific installation builds on Schmidt’s previous works that draw from the aesthetics of DIY creativity, such as EDM House (2014), where he covered a rural farm homestead with Christmas lights and synced them to his self-composed electronic dance music.

Reckless will run daily from 4:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m.
