Sculpture & installation

"This beautiful day" (Halth Skwile Te-staas) is an important acknowledgement expressed at the beginning of Squamish First Nations public gatherings. Inspired by the oral traditions and nature’s bountifulness, artist Kristin McIver has created an artwork that bridges divides amongst languages, cultures, and physical landscapes. THIS BEAUTIFUL DAY was exhibited as part the Vancouver Biennale on Loggers Lane until April this year. It will return to Squamish at a new location in time for BC Culture Days.

This event runs the duration of Culture Days.
