If you’ve passed by the Vancouver Art Gallery the last few days, you might have noticed that it’s gotten a bit of colour. As part of Façade Festival, the Vancouver Art Gallery will be covered in beautifully-coloured designs.

Running from Sunday, September 8th to Saturday, September 14th, artists will have their work projected onto the Georgia Street façade, covering the building with moving, dynamic artwork.

“Façade Festival is an immersive, large-scale artistic experience that will be shared by tens of thousands of attendees” reads the festival’s website.

These public art displays will be on from sunset to midnight each evening.
