I guess some art afficianados view gallery-going as an equivalent to getting hammered. I don't know why else the gallery would have chosen this sculpture to be its iconic representative.
Parking is often an issue in downtown areas, but artists are always innovative when it comes to finding solutions. The painter, Emily Carr, used to suspend her chairs from the ceiling by ropes when they were not in use, so why not hang up visitors' cars?
Touring extensive galleries is an exhausting undertaking. Here we see a group of foreign visitors sitting down for a rest while the more conservative look on with some envy at their free spiritedness,
although a few among them got downright prickly about the situation, visibly bristling at the effrontery.
