It’s another big year for Vancouver as the city celebrates 125 years since its incorporation and to boot, it has been designated a Cultural Capital of Canada for 2011. This means we can expect public celebrations, exhibits, performances and more throughout the year (many of which are already listed on the CelebrateVancouver125 website). In honor of this recognition and designation, local blog VancouverMom is putting the call out to find the “30 Best Family-Friendly Places to Explore the Arts in Vancouver”.

Some of my picks would be…

Bill Reid Gallery or Northwest Coast ArtThe Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art
Museum of Anthropology
Vancouver Art Gallery
Public art walking tours (on your own)
West End or Coal Harbour Community Centres
Granville Island for the Carousel Theatre
Granville Island for the Arts Umbrella

Public can submit their favourite places online until January 31, 2011. VancouverMom then will have the task of putting together the ultimate list for family-friendly art destinations in Vancouver. Follow on Twitter for updates about the poll and everyday family resources.
