A Sense of Place

By Robin Laurence

Vancouver International Airport, known for its modern design, offers an impressive visual display of award-winning art and architecture. In A Sense of Place, art historian and critic Robin Laurence examines the commissioning of dozens of striking artworks as a response to the airport’s overall architectural and design plan, particularly as a reflection of the cultural heritage and natural environment identified with the province of British Columbia. Among the highlights of the collection are monumental sculptures by leading Northwest Coast First Nations artists, including Susan A. Point, Robert Davidson, Dempsey Bob, Richard Hunt, Lyle Wilson, Joe David, Connie Watts, and the late Bill Reid, famed for The Spirit of Haida Gwaii: The Jade Canoe.
