Guests will be dining in the newly opened Douglas Coupland feature exhibit Vortex. The major sculpture exhibition combines art and science and brings to awareness to ocean plastic pollution. Coupland has reimagined what is commonly called “the Pacific Trash Vortex” or the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which is the largest accumulation of ocean plastic in the world, 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic to be exact. The exhibit features colourful ocean plastics that have been collected along the British Columbia coastline by Coupland, the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, and other collaborating cleanup organizations.
