Look on any Canadian twenty dollar bill and you'll see the The Spirit of Haida Gwaii -- a famous scuplture by Haida artist Bill Reid.
The next time you're at Vancouver airport you'll have the chance to see Reid's Spirit of Haida Gwaii -- The Jade Canoe up close in the airport's international terminal. It's the first piece the airport added in the mid 1990s as part of its "Spirit of Place" art collection to reflect the land, sea and sky. Throughout the airport and outside the Canada Line Railway station, you'll see works of art by Pacific Northwes artists reflecting the native culture of British Colombia, including a new "green wall" just outside the station.
Some of us attending the World Route Development Forum here received an interesting tour of the art collection, and a taste of the vibrant Seaplane culture here in Vancouver.
