Forks Public Art: Ness Lee & birdO

Posted on Sep 24, 2018 by The Forks Market

Parking at The Forks just got a whole lot prettier. As a part of Synonym Art Consultation's Wall-to-Wall Mural and Cultural Festival, we have four new pairs of murals in the parkade.

Artists, Ness Lee and Jerry Rugg a.k.a. birdO collaborated for a series of murals based on the four elements – water, earth, fire, and water. As you go up each level, you'll see a set of two murals focused on each one.
