YVR Art Foundation
PROJECT
YVR Art Foundation is a nonprofit, charitable organization founded in 1993 by Vancouver Airport Authority. The Foundation’s aim is to foster the development of BC First Nations art and artists. Its principal initiatives are to provide scholarships and awards to emerging and mid-career First Nations artists to help them develop or enhance their artistic practice. Through our Latitude’s Gives program, we developed a new identity for the YVRAF.
There are 198 First Nations bands in BC, each with its own unique art and culture. We were challenged in developing a unifying visual theme that reflected this rich, diverse culture. Understanding the historically important connection between forests and First Nations, our solution was to develop an abstract forest design that can be broadly and artistically repurposed.
