Watch for the return of Meander this spring and summer, as the electric blue artist-designed modular seating units will be popping up at a public space near you.

Designed for public seating in multiple configurations and for a variety of uses, these 24 unique and moveable units were commissioned through the Richmond Public Art Program’s Canada 150 program by Vancouver-based artists and designers, Milos Begovic and Becki Chan.

Throughout the spring and summer, Meander will activate public gathering spaces such as the outdoor plazas at the Richmond Cultural Centre, Minoru Centre for Active Living and Richmond City Hall. The benches will also visit major events including the Steveston Salmon Festival on July 1, Maritime Festival on July 27 and 28 and Richmond World Festival on Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 at Minoru Park.

The public is invited to celebrate the return of Meander at a midday musical performance by Sam Cave on Thursday, June 20 at Richmond City Hall plaza from noon to 1:15 p.m. The Butler Did It café at city hall will be in full swing with their Thursday barbecue lunch.

Evoking the qualities of water, through shape and colour, the roto-molded and lightweight plastic design is inspired by the Fraser River’s winding paths that define Lulu Island and the Fraser Delta.
