On Saturday, we ventured to the Vancouver Art Gallery to escape the wet weather, and of course, try and bump up our cultural content for the weekend. One of the most beautiful and impressive pieces we saw that day was artist Michael Lin's installation on the exterior of the gallery titled A Modest Veil... it is huge and a sight not to be missed!! Three large hand-painted, yes... that's right, hand-painted murals cover the building's facade (I only managed to squeeze in two of the panels into the first photo, they are that gigantic). The pattern is based on traditional Taiwanese textiles. Venture downtown Vancouver if you haven't seen it yet... it will be up until May 2010.
