Hastings Crossing BIA is excited to be commissioning a new mural at the corner of Columbia and Hastings Street! The mural is a full building wrap of Pigeon Park Savings (92 E Hastings) produced in partnership with Create Vancouver Society (Vancouver Mural Festival), BC Housing, VanCity, Pigeon Park Savings, PHS Community Services Society, and the DTES Market. The initial vision here was to reflect what an important landmark Pigeon Park Savings continues to be within the neighbourhood. The piece has been designed by respected Haida artist, Corey Bulpitt and will feature pigeons in traditional Haida formline style as a kind of crest for the urban community.
We will gather just next door at the DTES Market at 62 E Hastings Street on August 8 at noon to unveil the new mural. Join us for a community celebration and barbecue provided by Save On Meats! Let us know you’re coming by RSVPing here.
We acknowledge this location is on the unceded Coast Salish Territory; the traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
