A collection of art is found beneath the bridge I showed you in yesterday's post. As these were set in an exterior location, these are reproductions of the original works. Collectively called from here to there (then and now), these artworks are by First Nations artists from across the country, each done within the last few years, done with different methods but each influenced by the cultures and backgrounds of the artists. It's an interesting use of the space, which would be more known to pedestrians and cyclists as opposed to the drivers who pass overhead each day on their day to and from work. They might not even know there's an underpass here.
