03 Jun ‘Pulling Together’ Fills Hospital Lobby
When you sit in the tower lobby at the Sechelt Hospital and look up, you might notice an attractive artistic element curving around the ceiling. Better yet, walk up the lobby stairs and admire the Shain Jackson mural that hovers over the stairwell. It’s huge – a sculptural artwork designed by the Coast Salish artist that is best viewed from outside especially at evening time when the lights of the building set off the giant carving in relief.
Titled Pulling Together, it was commissioned by Vancouver Coastal Health in 2012 and installed in 2013. It was the first step in the current hospital program of acquiring art.
