The Building Better Revitalized Neighbourhoods (BBRN) program at the City of Ottawa has a goal of improving the health, vibrancy and liveability of priority neighbourhoods within our city. In autumn 2020 the program funded a community-engaged project that created an open-air “art gallery” on the City’s traffic signal boxes along the main streets of Vanier. The gallery features six artworks by local artists that were meant to respond to and represent the incredible diversity of the Vanier neighbourhood. As a result, this final roster of artworks created in a dazzling array of styles and techniques features rich imagery and symbolism from around the world.
