The Greenway, now steadily emerging from derelict railroad tracks, has it’s first Vancouver Biennale art installation: “Rainbow Rocks On the Greenway”. It’s temporary, like this version of the Greenway. Designed by Grade 2 students, the 800 or so coloured rocks have messages written underneath them — for that welcome element of interactivity.
Click any photo for a large slide show of them all.
Here “Rocks” is a noun, and not a verb. Although the whole installation definitely rocks. The kids really get it, too. A few rocks are message-side up, and one (see photo) says “False Creek to Fraser River”.
