A Second Public Art Pop-Up Display In Yellowknife

~~Yellowknife still loves its public art. Come see a new pop-up installation, corner of Burwash Drive & Rycon Drive!

 

These eye-catching, re-purposed traffic signs are fun to view in the daytime, but they also dance with reflections at night!

Bring a flashlight to shine on these works, and watch the graphics reflect back at you just like a sign on the highway!

It’s Free! On display for a limited time during March.

Signs by Boris Atamanenko and Rowan.

Installed by Donna Dooley, Rowan and Boris Atamanenko.
