Evergreen Extension Public Art Collection

Statement of Significance

Nature, cultural diversity, transportation and local history are among the themes explored by public art installed at the Burquitlam, Coquitlam Central, Lincoln, and Lafarge Lake-Douglas stations of the Millennium Line Evergreen Extension.


Seven British Columbia artists were selected, by the Coquitlam Evergreen Line Public Art Task Force, to create 11 works of art through a public art selection process in 2014 that attracted 57 submissions from around the world.

The public art was funded with $300,000 from the Province of British Columbia and $50,000 from Coquitlam’s casino-funded Community Capital Fund. The artworks will be formally introduced to the public in late 2016, following the official opening of the Evergreen Extension.
