Bright downtown

The DVBIA proudly presents “BRIGHT Downtown,” a public outdoor activation digitally projecting artwork and animations onto Fairmont Hotel Vancouver in the heart of downtown.

Partnering with Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and Go2 Productions, BRIGHT Downtown will run from March 6th – 12th, 2021. The audience can experience the visual spectacle between the hours of 6pm and 10pm from šxʷƛ̓ənəq Xwtl’e7énk Square (North Plaza of the Vancouver Art Gallery).

Watch BRIGHT Downtown from Home! (Full Video)

Taking place during a traditionally dark and wet time of the year, the intent of the project is to bring joyful and bright imagery to downtown that will “Light Up Your Night” – helping to create a positive and up-lifting feeling for the year ahead. This year’s theme is “Tangled,” exploring the relationship between art and community, visually defining how art is intrinsically interwoven into every step of the human experience.

BRIGHT Downtown is free for all to experience. With many festivals and events cancelled, BRIGHT Downtown is a new and safe way to experience artwork in an outdoor setting.
