A few months ago, the City of Victoria (my hometown) put out a call to local artists to submit proposals for the "Storefronts Exhibition Program" Public Art Project to animate vacant commercial spaces in the Downtown core. To keep the project safer this year due to the pandemic, rather than site-specific installations, they requested patterned designs to cover vacant storefronts with vinyl wrap (just up my alley, right?!). Happily, my "Dream" design was chosen and has now been installed at 1420 Douglas St. (near Pandora Ave.)! If you find yourself in Downtown Victoria and happen to pass by it, please do take a photo and tag me!
