New neon art shines love on the heart of Davie Village


A new piece of neon art is shining some love on Vancouver’s Davie Village.

Artist Jim Balakshin’s neon heart full of a rainbow-hued “Davie Village” is bringing smiles to the West End neighbourhood–with hopes the temporary installation can find a home in the area.

Part of Vancouver’s annual Lumiere Festival, the “Heart of Davie Village” neon is in place next to the Fountainhead Pub (1025 Davie Street), and will be in place until February 23, 2018.

But Balakshin says he hopes the piece can find a permanent home, too. Here’s hoping!
