Construction has started for the Polygon Gallery on the City of North Vancouver’s waterfront.
The arts facility will be the new home of the Presentation House Gallery, an internationally recognized venue for artistic photography that will take on the name of the modern building when it opens next year.
“We are very excited that construction is underway, and cannot wait to welcome people to the new Gallery in 2017,” gallery director Reid Shier said in a media release.
Among those who attended the groundbreaking ceremony Monday (January 18) were North Vancouver Mayor Darrell Mussatto, North Vancouver MP Jonathan Wilkinson, B.C. Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development Peter Fassbender, and North Vancouver-Lonsdale MLA Naomi Yamamoto.
“The Polygon Gallery will transform and enhance our waterfront landscape as it becomes a part of our vibrant Shipyards District,” Mussatto said in the news release. “We are looking forward to the completion of this world class public art gallery that will serve as a community hub while offering expanded opportunities for art exhibition and education in our city.”
