New art display celebrates history of Minoru Arena

A new community-based public art display is celebrating more than 50 years of history and the contributions of local athletes at Minoru Arena.

FANFARE is a two-dimensional artwork that has been installed on 24 concrete pillars inside Minoru Arena. The works showcase the heritage and some cultural events that have taken place at the arena including the old Brighouse Park Racetrack and Holland Heineken House during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

Produced by Vancouver-based artist, Faith Moosang, the materials for the display were collected from arena users, community members and the Richmond Archives. Moosang, a multimedia artist, curator, writer and researcher, typically explores spectacle culture and media in her artwork.

FANFARE is part of the City’s 2018 Engaging Artists in Community Public Arts Projects.
