The Shore Public Art Master Plan presented the Shore development`s four public art phases, budgets, artist calls, and selection processes. 

Over 90 artists from Canada, US, Europe and Asia responded to the Shore Project’s Ltd. two staged artist call.  After considerable deliberation and discussion, an independent panel choose the following artists and their artwork proposals.  This artwork has been completed and installed.

1. Jody Broomfield, a Squamish First Nation artist,  crafted a fabricated stainless steel art sculpture that pays homage to the 4 most prominent mountains on the North Shore: Cyprus, Lions, Grouse, and Seymour.  The sculpture is located on City of North Vancouver property just before the entryway to The Shores residential development. 

2. Cheryl Hamilton and Michael Vandermeer, IE Creative, created two complementary reflecting sculptures with mirrored surfaces mimicking the natural environment.  They are  located at the “Arrival” and “Reflection” public art locations.  The Arrival artwork is located just before entry into the central plaza, and Reflection is located in the central plaza’s water feature.  Both artworks include lighting.

3. John Marston’s, a Coast Salish Carver,  created an aluminum/red cedar carved totem that “Honours the Life of a Cedar”.  This artwork is located along the development’s internal pedestrian walkway.
