The objective of White Rock’s Public Art Program is to create artwork that is accessible to the public. By virtue of its placement, content and public engagement, public art shapes the environment around it. Successful community art projects can help communities change the local environment and develop a sense of pride and ownership over their public spaces.
Rainworks Public Art Project
Rainworks is an invisible spray that is rain activated and the art will only appear when it is raining. Jeff Kulak, a Vancouver based artist, has been hired to animate White Rock with positive messages during the dark rainy winter months. These messages will come to life when it rains. Each piece around the city is supported by commemorative stories and events. This project is a celebration and recognition of White Rock’s 60th Birthday.
