Medallion Art along West Broadway


Coast Salish MedallionA while ago, Larry – YatterMatters – Yatkowsky did a great post about an art/cultural project along West Broadway.

A total of 36 granite medallions have been embedded in the sidewalk along West Broadway, between Larch and Collingwood. The works combine Kitsilano’s Coast Salish’ and Greek heritage, resulting in a unique mix of medallions featuring art inspired by ancient Greek and First Nations culture.

Greek MedallionThe project is a joint initiative from the Kitsilano Chamber of Commerce, the West Broadway Business Committee, and the Hellenic Canadian Congress of B.C.

Larry took a few pictures of some of the medallions and posted them in a Flickr set.
