A harbinger of springtime in Vancouver, cherry blossoms cover the region in delightfully fragrant pink and white confetti, with a natural celebration of the season. From March 5 to 31, Metropolis at Metrotown’s Grand Court will be the site of Blossom at Metropolis, an awe-inspiring, one-of-a-kind art installation made up of more than 250,000 cherry blossoms.

Blossom at Metropolis

Where: Metropolis at Metrotown Grand Court (4700 Kingsway, Burnaby)
When: March 5 – 31, 2019. Open daily during regular mall hours. Monday to Saturday, 10:00am to 9:00pm; Sunday and holidays, 11:00am to 7:00pm

Created by Vancouver interactive-arts company Hfour, Blossom at Metropolis encourages people to wander, take photos (including in an Instagram-worthy “selfie zone”), and sit in awe of the quarter-million-plus blossoms, which will be reflected in dozens of mirror spheres (with the largest being 4 metres in size) that create the illusion of infinite blooms hanging above them.

As well, there will be a variety of floral art and Japanese cultural workshops every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during the installation’s 27 days, presented in collaboration with MUJI (Workshop Wednesdays) and Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre (Tuesdays and Thursdays). Workshops include origami, brush lettering, traditional Japanese paper and fabric art, flower arranging, traditional Japanese folk dancing, and much more.
