(0 ratings)
Quest image more than 2
Granville Island, a bustling community of indie shops and studios, is often imitated. To truly get the place, though, you need to see the unique way its past as "Industrial Island" still mingles with its new life as an arts hub.

This quest illuminates that legacy, documenting the island's strange transformation:
How did a lead paint factory become kids' favorite destination? 
How did the largest work ever made by twin brother muralists end up in a concrete factory? 
The island has the answers.

Your days of instant noodles for dinner are over; time to make something of yourself!  From industry to art, Granville Island is the place to do it!

A record store on the Island could bring in big bucks, but you know the shop needs a centrepiece, something no-one else has: the rumored one-of-one LP from reclusive avant-garde superstar Grant Marin, hidden on the island where he worked before his big break.

Follow clues from Marin's songs and notes to get that LP before anyone else!
