City of Richmond

City of Richmond, Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics

Home of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Oval, the City of Richmond needed a media kit that included highlights of the Richmond Oval’s Public Art program, a groundbreaking commitment to public art for the city that also told the story of Richmond to residents and visitors alike. 

The Work

Working with the Communications Director and senior managers of Richmond’s public art program, I researched, interviewed and wrote the backgrounder on Richmond Oval’s public art, which included a variety of large sculptures, Water Sky Garden, and an aboriginal medicinal and herb garden. The backgrounder was included in all media kits for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.
