East Van Cross Embroidered Hooded Sweatshirt - Officially Licensed

Regular price $90.00

This graphic is licensed from the City of Vancouver. 

Premium embroidery and accents have been stitched onto this premium sweatshirt just a couple of blocks away from the monument.

The graphic is a take on Ken Lum's Monument for East Vancouver sculpture, which is itself a take on the old school East Van cross.

Built on Clark Drive for the 2010 Olympics as a public art legacy project, the "cross" had been an East Van staple for decades. Rumoured to be graffiti used by one of Vancouver's infamous "park" gangs (which you can read about in Aaron Chapman's The Last Gang In Town), today it is simply a sign of neighbourhood pride.
