False Creek seawall gets trio of giant jelly beans

Love jelly beans? Well, you won’t be able to eat these ones.

The latest Vancouver Biennale public art piece will be revealed tomorrow afternoon at Charleston Park’s dog area in False Creek South.

The piece is called Love Your Bean, featuring three enormous jelly beans – yellow, blue and red – designed by Canadian sculptor and filmmaker Cosimo Cavallaro. Last year, Cavallaro also created a similar art piece for a public park in the City of West Hollywood.

“Some things in life should just be fun”, said Barrie Mowatt, President and Founder of the Vancouver Biennale, in a statement. “It’s a location that already attracts a lot of families with kids, seawall joggers and cyclists, but now they’ll have a reason to stop, enjoy the curiosity and share an art-inspired laugh”.

The installation will be officially unveiled to the public Friday afternoon. It is the third public art installation along the south shore of False Creek, adding to the OSGEMOS public mural on the Granville Island concrete factory silos and Human Structures Vancouver by Jonathan Borofsky at the Olympic Village.
