The Best Letter 'We' Could Ever Receive! Vancouver Biennale.
Tuesday February 2nd, 2010
To those who have made the Vancouver Biennale possible,
I want to thank you from the whole of my being for the extraordinary urban artscape you have created. My wife and I were celebrating her birthday in town (we live on Saltspring Island) and saw a number of the works.
However, we were especially and profoundly moved by “We” by Jaume Plensa. I have travelled the world and been to many of the great museums, galleries and sculpture parks throughout it. I have never seen a work and an installation that so perfectly integrated form, meaning, and setting, nor created such inspiration within me.
Perhaps we were especially fortunate to come upon the work completely unexpectedly, and on a perfect day and time.
In any case, we are deeply grateful to the artist and to the exhibition for this experience.
As a token of our gratitude, here are a couple photos I took. You may use them on the Facebook site or elsewhere, if you so choose:
