This piece of public art titled “We” was created by world reknown artist Jaume Plensa and has to be my favourite of all the pieces of public art out there in Vancouver right now. This sculpture is best viewed at night, not saying it isn’t impressive during the day but at night it is simply amazing. This is also part of the Vancouver Biennale.
Jaume Plensa’s sculpture is entitled WE and it’s situated on a hilltop along Sunset Beach.
It’s a seated figure made of letters from many different alphabets from around the world. The figure is facing west toward the open waters of the Pacific Ocean.
It’s a powerful piece that is especially profound given the Olympic atmosphere in Vancouver right now. As a symbol the world community, communication and understanding, this sculpture is perfectly poised to welcome and inspire international visitors. [source]
