The Vancouver Art Gallery was transformed once again last night as day 2 of the Façade Festival turned the Robson Street exterior into a pixellated piece of projection art.

Now in its second year, Façade Festival aims to take a dynamic and unique approach to the realm of public art, featuring work by local artists Eric Metcalfe, Barry Doupé, Rebecca Chaperon, Renée Van Halm, and Chris Shier.

From August 30 to September 3, each artist will get a chance to display their projections on the Art Gallery with a special encore presentation featuring all five artists’ work on September 4 and a grand finale on September 5.

Take a look below for some of the best photos from last night’s presentation from Barry Doupé.
