A Province Without Art
People are gathering at the Art Gallery today, dressed in grey, to protest the chaos in BC's provincial arts funding. In case I don't make it - not sure I have any grey in my closet - here's the word from film maker Steven Soderbergh...
"I want to thank anyone who spends part of their day creating. I don't care if it's a book, a film, a painting, a dance, a piece of theatre, a piece of music. Anybody who spends part of their day sharing their experience with us. I think this world would be unliveable without art . . . Thank you for inspiring me. Thank you for this."
