VMF Winter Arts 2021

VMF Winter Arts


Friday, February 12, 2021 - 8:00am to Sunday, February 28, 2021 - 5:00pm


Experience Vancouver like never before! This February, VMF Winter Arts blurs the line between the virtual and real world with a creative new way to safely explore and discover the city. From February 12-28, 2021, public space across Vancouver’s core will be transformed into an interactive, open-air gallery featuring Augmented Reality (AR) art by local and international artists.

In a year marked by social distancing, VMF reimagined new opportunities to safely connect art and people in public space. Combining the spirit of the annual Vancouver Mural Festival with innovative digital technology, VMF Winter Arts creates an open-air experience featuring 20+ augmented reality artworks across Vancouver’s core.

With the help of VMF’s Mobile App (available to download for free from the App Store and Google Play), Vancouverites can safely explore the city and find all AR locations while following COVID protocol. Alternatively, downloadable maps can be found on the vanmuralfest.ca website.

Near the CDM campus, an IM4 installation will be in the St. George Plaza in front of Emily Carr and beside the petal and 2 MDM student installations will be just west of Kafka's and the 577 building, close to our Little Lending Library.
