Not sure if you have seen this, but Vancouver's Science World has erected a gold-covered billboard at Granville and 4th Avenue (at the entrance of Granville Island) to advertise their newest summer exhibition "Treasure!". The billboard uses two ounces of real 22-karat gold pounded into a thin sheet which covers approximately 200 square feet. Yes... you read right... real gold. Roger took this pic on his way to work, and as you can see the lovely billboard also comes with a 24hr security guard... although how anyone would steal a 200 sq ft billboard, I have no idea.
