Burnaby’s Metrotown area is lighting up thanks to new illuminated art installations created by students at a local elementary school.

The light-up art is part of an initiative from Belford Properties. The development company donated $15,000 to the Burnaby Neighbourhood House to sponsor much-needed afterschool programs at Maywood Community School. The funding provided one year of arts classes for students in grades two to seven.

To celebrate the students’ artwork, Belford is showcasing it on their massive Sun Towers project hoarding, located along Beresford Street.

The Sun Towers hoarding is designed with colourful LED lights that illuminate when coins are dropped into the donation box on site. Limbic Media was behind the project’s lighting and interactions.

All proceeds will go towards funding afterschool arts programs at Burnaby Neighbourhood House and Belford has committed to match all donations raised.
