For many visitors, YVR provides the first and last impression of British Columbia with art and architecture reflective of the province’s diverse landscape and people. YVR's art is located throughout the airport and can be categorized into the following themes:

YVR's award-winning Sense of Place is the thematic art and architecture that draws on the themes of land, sea and sky. Showcasing the best of British Columbia, this calming and inspiring force welcomes and bids farewell to the millions of travellers who make their way through YVR each year.

We are proud of our airport and the artists whose work contributes directly to an exceptional passenger experience. We are also dedicated to supporting emerging First Nations artists through the YVR Art Foundation.
