The WALL, located at the CBC Vancouver Broadcast Centre Plaza at 700 Hamilton Street, is a Vancouver Heritage Foundation public art initiative. It is made possible by a unique partnership between Vancouver Heritage Foundation and CBC Radio-Canada, with support from JJ Bean Coffee Roasters, and is produced in partnership with the City of Vancouver Public Art Program, the WALL features a new artist every year.
The call for 2019 Wall proposals has now ended. Thank you for your interest. Please check back in early 2020 for details about the next call for proposals.
