Young, vibrant, fresh, multi-cultural, and west coast. Art and culture in Vancouver is a reflection of the city - multi-cultural and west coast. Mix that in with an abundance of Native People's art, a rich music heritage, a myriad of theatre companies, museums, art and artists from Asia, plus outdoor theatre and music festivals, and you have an idea of Vancouver's year-round vibrant culture. With more than 100 private galleries located throughout the Greater Vancouver region, the city's art scene is rich with many of its artists gaining laudable reputations. Jack Shadbolt, Emily Carr, Gordon Smith, Lawren Harris, Bill Reid, Toni Onley, and Fred Varley gained international stature while today's young artists are making their mark. The Vancouver Symphony, Vancouver Opera, and Vancouver Recital Society are just three of the city's well attended music organizations. Jazz, rock, and other music forms bring in their share of enthusiasts in venues downtown and in most of the city's neighborhoods. You'll notice as you walk around the city that art is everywhere. Just wander into office buildings and hotels where walls are covered with works of art and ceilings hold surprises.
