Announcing the winners of our cross-Canada art competition for TELUS Garden

I am thrilled to announce that our jury has completed the selection process and the winners of our TELUS Garden national art competition are Amy Thomson of Ottawa and Brent Comber of North Vancouver.

Amy and Brent submitted proposals that were truly innovative and beautifully captured our vision of dramatic works of art that incorporate natural materials and celebrate both TELUS’ roots in British Columbia and the art of story-telling and communication.

Almost 50 artists and designers from across Canada took the time to enter our competition and I want to thank you all for your high-calibre submissions, which were beautiful, unique and inspiring. It has been such a privilege for me to discover your art and I look forward to following your careers in the months and years ahead.

Thank you for your interest in TELUS Garden, our new state-of-the-art corporate home in downtown Vancouver that fuses advanced technology and environmental sustainability with architecture, art and design. I hope you stop by and experience Amy and Brent’s masterpieces, which will be permanently displayed in our public spaces.
