The Burrard Arts Foundation is proud to have provided crucial project support for Deadhead, a large-scale sculptural public art installation developed by Other Sights for Artists’ Projects.

Deadhead was a large-scale sculptural installation mounted to a barge and towed by tug to different locations along Vancouver’s waterways. Created by Cedric Bomford in collaboration with his father Jim Bomford (a retired engineer), and brother Nathan Bomford (an artist and builder), the sculpture was constructed primarily from salvaged materials, with some sections wrapped in photographic murals. A curious marine outpost, Deadhead’s enigmatic spaces were designed for public access.
