Join Draw by Night and the Vancouver Urban Sketchers for a casual evening of drawing and imagining at the Museum of Vancouver in our Vancouver Imagined: The Way We Weren't exhibition space. All skill levels welcome!
Date: Thursday, March 27, 2014
Admission: By donation | Limited paper, pens & pencils provided. Feel free to bring your favourite sketchbook and/or drawing implement (dry media and pens only, no paints nor bottles of ink please)
Vancouver has been shaped by multiple decisions about what we chose to do and not to do. The built environment surrounding us provides clues about the nature of these debates, but it doesn’t tell us the full story. Vancouver Imagined: The Way We Weren't, guest curated by Jason Vanderhill of Illustrated Vancouver, showcases the work of architectural illustrators and model makers in the context of unrealized urban development projects, and provides a unique way to understand the city. Had these projects been given full assent, Vancouver would look dramatically different than it does today.
Spend a relaxed evening amongst other enthusiastic drawers of all skill levels. Find inspiration in the fantastical architectural renderings in Vancouver Imagined, the MOV's view of English Bay and the West End; our permanent and feature exhibitions; and amongst each other. Draw what you see, or sketch an imagined Vancouver as it might have once been, or is still yet to be.
