UniverCity ARTWALK

September 24, 2015



Understanding that communities gain intangible benefits from Public Art – interpretation, education, inspiration and aesthetic beauty to name a few – SFU Community Trust has set out to thoughtfully create a platform for both established and emerging artists in order to bring permanent and temporary pieces to the UniverCity community.

In a little over 10 years, the Trust has amassed the beginnings of a unique and varied public art collection with the support of its development partners – all of whom have embraced the unique character of the residential community on Burnaby Mountain. Beginning in 2007 with Yellow Fence by Erica Stocking, public art has been purposefully integrated into the design of each parcel of land developed.

If you’re a newcomer to UniverCity, as you embark upon ARTWALK today, you’ll undoubtedly learn a thing or two about the community and some local artists – and if you’re an old hat around here, perhaps you’ll see and appreciate something new on your journey that you have never noticed before.

Hardcopies of the ARTWALK tour book is available for pick up from the Trust office.
