Description

Labyrinth is a thoughtful and heart-warming large-scale art installation. It sprawls across 18,000 square feet and will be viewable at 655 Tyee Road from May 11th to the 22nd. Audience members will follow a path through the labyrinth adorned with paintings, artistic sculptures and written stories which reveal the show’s narrative. (It’s not a maze or an escape room. It’s a long winding hallway, about 5 to 6 feet wide with open areas now and then.)

 

As each audience member’s journey comes to an end, people can congregate afterwards at a large hang-out spot on the patio. There you can reflect together and enjoy beer and wine. The project is supported by a grant from the Department of Canadian Heritage.

Admission: $15 (available online and at the door)
Rating: Open to all ages. (Recommended for ages 9 and up)
Runtime: Approximately 30 minutes.
Location: 655 Tyee Road.
Dates: May 11th – 29th. (Please see the calendar below for showtimes)
