The Phoenix

The Phoenix metal and glass kinetic sculpture.

By Andrew Carson
Location: 8th & Main Street

The Phoenix is a whimsical metal and glass kinetic sculpture, powered by wind. It was purchased and installed by Vancouver’s Downtown Association in memory of Carl Dobbs, a VDA member who chaired its public art committee. Mr. Dobbs died in 2010.  Ownership was transferred to the City in 2014.

Artist Andrew Carson is based in Seattle. He has "whirlygigs" installed in nearly all of the 50 states.
