A complex of old warehouses converted into exhibition halls and artsy boutiques, The Pier-2 Art Centre houses various modern art projects in the middle of a huge abandoned industrial district. Take in the psychedelic-colored sculptures, installations, graffiti, large paintings, and other street art, and browse around the various industrial structures, including an old steam engine on display. You can also stroll along the wharf or take a mini-train tour of this post-industrial area, built in 1973. Cafes, bars, bookstores, and handicraft shops cluster in this private, university-managed center.

We were blown away by this place. The pier stretches for several blocks and there's unique and interesting art pieces all along it. Some are out in the open and others blend into the buildings. We were amazed by the creativity and style in some of these. I highly recommend that a visit. You won't regret it.
Loved this place! It's right off the light rail. I really liked that the art pieces weren't listed on a map. You had to wander to find the different pieces. A great blend of stores and a movie theater too! You can definitely spend an afternoon wandering around here!
