Donors can submit a photo to be a part of the piece of public art

In an effort to raise money for mental health supports at St. Paul’s Hospital, a huge photo-mosaic is planned for the corner of Granville and West Georgia streets.

The 60 ft. by 20 ft. piece, called ‘Pixel Moment’ will use donor-submitted photos as pixels to make up the overall image; 10,000 donors will be needed to complete the project. Once the photos have all been submitted artist Andrea Wan, who’s worked with the likes of the New York Times and Apple, will create the overall mosaic.

The piece is being organized by the St. Paul’s Foundation Future Leaders, a group of young professionals who volunteer to help raise money and awareness for the St. Paul’s Foundation, which in turn supports Providence Health Care and St. Paul’s Hospital.
