The anonymous individuals who were responsible for the original “Rainblossom” public art piece at Spanish Banks have struck again.

This time they chose a more visible and accessible location – right in the heart of downtown at the Vancouver Art Gallery plaza. A handful of red umbrellas are hung by string on the branches of a naked tree at the corner of West Georgia and Howe Streets.

The “Rainblossom project” made its Spanish Banks appearance in time for late-February’s snowfall, providing photographers with a stunningly contrasting white background.

Both citizen-spurred public art pieces were created as an visual ode to our wet, rainy climate.
