Rainblossom Public Art: Red Umbrellas Suspended On Trees at Vancouver Art Gallery Plaza

Comments

The anonymous individuals who were responsible for the original “Rainblossom” public art piece at Spanish Banks have struck again.

This time they chose a more visible and accessible location – right in the heart of downtown at the Vancouver Art Gallery plaza. A handful of red umbrellas are hung by string on the branches of a naked tree at the corner of West Georgia and Howe Streets.

The “Rainblossom project” made its Spanish Banks appearance in time for late-February’s snowfall, providing photographers with a stunningly contrasting white background.

Both citizen-spurred public art pieces were created as an visual ode to our wet, rainy climate.
