Vancouver is getting a sparkly, moving piece of public art: A massive 18th century French-inspired chandelier that slowly lowers over the course of 24 hours before zipping back up into its starting position once a day.

"Spinning Chandelier" is the work of B.C. artist Rodney Graham, and it's being installed under the Granville Bridge at Beach Avenue as part of Westbank's nearby Vancouver House development.

You can read more about "Spinning Chandelier" and its backstory HERE, but you can also watch this explainer video put together by our colleagues at the Vancouver Courier to get up to speed on this public art project that's been in the works for over five years now.

One more thing: "Spinning Chandelier" will open to the public officially on November 27, 2019.
