Hot Art: Going Public

The bigger, the better—especially when it comes to public art. For two years, our city has been an outdoor art gallery for the large-scale installations of the Vancouver International Sculpture Biennale. The exhibition officially ended last month with a sculpture auction, so it’s your last chance to see the alfresco artworks before they’re dismantled this summer. In an homage to our mobile society, most pieces can be found along transit routes.
