Vancouver's manhole cover art


I read about the results of this unusual public art competition twice in Zeke's Gallery, a Montreal art blog! He refers to articles in the Globe & Mail and the National Post.

So where's Vancouver's own online coverage of arts news that made it to national news? Okay, it was in the Vancouver Sun newspaper, but the online version requires a subscription.

By the way, congratulations to an artist I know, Jen Weih, one of the two prize winners of this design competition.

Howdy!

The only local stuff I could find was this:
http://www.westender.com/portals-code/list.cgi?paper=49&cat=23&id=270617&more=

Second paragraph.

Play ball!

Thanks Zeke for the search! That paper is definitely very local to West End Vancouver and I did not know they had a web presence! I still think at least CBC BC could have posted something, if the national papers could. Under all this is a pet peeve at how little real visual arts coverage we get locally. The Orcas project, for g's sake, has ANOTHER big spread in the Vancouver Sun!! Charity & corporate sponsors speak!
