The Words Don’t Fit the Picture

Earlier this year, as part of the City of Vancouver’s Olympic-inspired public art program, many large-scale sculptures and installations started to appear throughout the city. This piece — The Words Don’t Fit the Picture — is my favourite.

Created by artist Ron Terada, the sign is located just outside the Vancouver Public Library‘s Central Branch, at Robson and Homer.

I assumed that its placement at the library was temporary, but I’m delighted to discover that The Words Don’t Fit the Picture is one of nine works selected as “Legacy Sites” and will now be a permanent fixture of the city.

Hooray for public art!

Oh, and did you notice the banner for the Vancouver Public Library book sale in the background of the photos? Check it out on July 8th and 9th. Come early — the line-up can get crazy. See my blog post on the spring book sale for tips.
