Robert’s new book “People Among the People: The Public Art of Susan Point” beautifully displays the breadth and depth of Susan Point’s public art, which has been said to almost single-handedly revive the traditional Coast Salish art style. Her works include public pieces installed at Vancouver International Airport, Stanley Park, the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington D.C., and others—
she also has several works featured in North Vancouver! Robert will discuss his new book and highlight Susan’s art through a visual presentation of her beautiful art.
