The Vancouver 2010 Olympics have officially started and Vancouver is roaring to go. VANOC, host cities, the federal government, pavilions, businesses and private residences have all adopted lighting as major component of the celebration. VANOC’s CODE Live program acknowledges the importance of lighting in projects such as Vectorial Elevation in English Bay. The Province is using lighting to help Ignite the Dream at Robson Square, many of the projects in the City of Vancouver’s Olympic and Paralympic Public Art Program incorporate lighting and the Yaletown BIA’s Made in Vancouver Festival features light artists. The Canadian Olympic Committee has encouraged all citizens to Paint the Town Red.
The Eos team has created a Google Map to showcase all the great lighting projects around Vancouver. You can check out the 2010 Lights Up Google Map here. As you explore the projects and take pictures, upload them to our Eos Flickr Group to show them off to the world!
