The WALL is a large format artists’ platform made possible through a unique partnership between Vancouver Heritage Foundation and CBC/Radio-Canada. It is produced in partnership with the City of Vancouver Public Art Program. Additional support is provided by JJ Bean Coffee Roasters. The WALL features a new artist every year. This outdoor installation has featured artworks of both upcoming and established artists, exploring the theme of Vancouver’s built environment. Information on previous installations, as well as the current work, is listed below. Submissions for the 2022 The WALL installation are now open. We welcome submissions from emerging and established artists and independent curators.

Applicants should respond to and reflect upon Vancouver’s history, heritage and built environment when researching for and developing a concept for The WALL.
