‘Rusty container’ Art Questioned
Tuesday April 22nd, 2014
One councillor’s Picasso is another’s eyesore.
New Westminster’s participation in the 2014 Vancouver Biennale public art project almost got derailed last week.
Council decided to table its final decision last Monday a few hours after a vote that could have killed it.
The entire council liked two of the proposals for the bi-annual public art exhibition, but were divided over a third. It is the most expensive, and is the legacy piece the city would keep while the other two would disappear within two years.
