In the last few weeks, Douglas St. in downtown Victoria has been getting a colourful facelift.
It started with this mural appearing on 1280 Douglas St.
The newest additions are these puzzle pieces on the cross walk at Yates.
Now, the response to these art installations are not 100% positive. Some are referring to the mural as a “Rainbow human centipede”, and some say the puzzle pieces are reminiscent of “childhood bedroom foamy puzzle mats”. The common question that the public is asking is “WHY?”
The art was installed by the DVBA to help make Victoria a more “walkable city” and the puzzle pieces, in particular, have been said to be a symbol for Autism Awareness.
Knowing the reasoning behind these colourful additions, does it alter your opinion? Comment bellow!
