The Drop Vancouver
Having just spent a weekend in Vancouver, British Columbia, I now want to go back and see more of that beautiful city. I was there for the TBEX (Travel Blog Exchange) conference held at the Vancouver Convention Centre which has a terrific location on the waterfront. One of the many things that impressed me about Vancouver is that there are many art galleries and public art exhibitions. In fact, the kickoff party for the conference was at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
Shown in this photo is The Drop, a 65 ft tall sculpture located outside of the convention centre overlooking the water. It was created by Inges Idee, a group of German artists and installed in 2009. The Drop represents a droplet of water or rain and is an “homage to the power of nature”, as described by the artists. I think it’s beautiful in color, simplicity and placement on the edge of the seawall.
I’m not an expert on art. I just know what I like. What do you think of The Drop?
