A former fine arts instructor with the city of Coquitlam now has her “brain sculpture” in a national show to highlight Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
Flavia Chan’s work, Dark Days, is in the fifth Yogen Früz Brain Project, an initiative by The Baycrest Foundation that raises awareness about brain health.
Chan’s sculpture is located in the Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto until March 2021, and is for sale at $1,750 with proceeds supporting brain research at Baycrest.
A total of 50 artists from across Canada took part in this year’s Brain Project.
Chan won the 2015 Kwi Am Choi Scholarship at PoMoArts and painted the 125th anniversary salmon that’s now placed at Como Lake Park in Coquitlam.
She also had a solo exhibit at PoMoArts called Stories Before We Sleep.
