The 3 portal murals are a recent addition to the art in Stanley Park. This art work consists of three painted round 9' in diameter murals and a wooden plaque. It was created to recognize some of the great architecture around Vancouver that fits in with nature. They murals were created by Christina Gray and Jon Reed as part of the 125 Mural Program It was completed on September 11, 2011.
Surprisingly, none of the subjects of these murals is located in Stanley Park. Also, these are the only art works in Stanley Park that are painted pictures. We recommend that you check them out!
The plaque says:
Drawing upon Vancouver's architectural history Portal transports the viewer from one iconic Vancouver space into another - a domestic view of the Graham House (1963) by Arthur Erickson, the interior of the Bloedel Conservatory (1969) and the interior of the B.C. Binning House (1941).
