First Nations Crosswalk Design Granville Street
In collaboration with Musqueam, we’re pleased to introduce a new original crosswalk design by Musqueam artist Robyn Sparrow, using our TrafficPatterns product.
Earlier this week, coinciding with National Indigenous Peoples Day, the City of Vancouver unveiled a new three-section crosswalk designed by Musqueam First Nation artist Robyn Sparrow. This commission for this project resulted from an open call to Musqueam artists and is intended to celebrate the vitality of the Musqueam community and its artistic traditions. The crosswalk is a tribute to the visibility of Musqueam history and territory.
Sparrow’s design was selected after the municipal government issued an open call last year to Indigenous artists to submit their designs for consideration. This location was selected for its highly active location within a retail area and its proximity to the Musqueam’s ancient village of c̓əsnaʔəm. Metro Vancouver’s growing collection of multi-coloured, thematic crosswalks now includes a new pedestrian crossing with a First Nations design. The new permanent crosswalks are designed with geometric patterns of white, black, sonoma sand, brick red, and yellow are located on Granville Street in South Vancouver, between West 70th Avenue and 68th Avenue.
Earlier this month, several new crosswalks funded by Fortis BC were painted with the colours of the Italian flag were painted on Commercial Drive to provide the area with a visual representation of its designation as Vancouver’s Little Italy district. And, of course, there are now over 40 public installations across BC that celebrate the LGBTQ community, with most of these installations being rainbow crosswalks.
