Art plays an important role in encouraging ridership, improving perceptions of transit, contributing to way finding, and enhancing community identity.
All six stations will incorporate art. The project team is working directly with Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations to support a separate, parallel process in relation to Indigenous art and cultural recognition across the six stations with prominent Indigenous artworks planned for Great Northern Way-Emily Carr, Oak-VGH and Arbutus stations.
Artists have been commissioned to create public artworks at four of the stations as illustrated below (proposed locations are highlighted in yellow).
Public art is a key component of the SkyTrain system and is featured at many stations and/or station plazas along the SkyTrain alignment and at all existing Millennium Line stations.
