chART Marpole Public Art New Starbucks Mural

Published: August 6, 2017

JAN 2018  — The talented student artists at Emily Carr University have done it again.

Over the summer of 2017, students worked on the design and production of a new street mural for the north-facing wall of the Starbucks at West 64th Avenue.

The mural Metro Migration by Maddy Philips and Ben Evely, embraces the theme of human and animal movement in Marople.

It includes natural iconography of indigenous plants, and the animals moving in the community – migratory birds, freshwater and sea life.

The community became engaged in the painting process in a big way, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

Sincere thanks to Maddy Philips, Ben Evely, Starbucks, property owner Dylan, Ashley Guindon, Dr. Cameron Cartiere, and the City of Vancouver.
