Debating ‘The Wow Factor’
Wednesday April 30th, 2014
City council has pressed the pause button on a controversial piece of public art described as having ‘The Wow Factor.’
But to some councillors it may be a bad ‘wow.’ And if they decide to dump it they won’t get the two art pieces they do like.
They’re all part of the Vancouver Biennale’s latest initiative for which the city has budgeted $90,000. Biennale officials told council Monday the three installations are a package deal. They also told council they have a track record that will prove them right in the end.
