Upcoming Events

An absolute must see, especially for Fred Herzog lovers:
Quote:
Massive New Exhibition Space To Open

Equinox Gallery is about to open a brand new massive exhibition space in one of the former industrial buildings on the former Finning Lands in east Vancouver.

Called Equinox Project Space, it contains 1,115 square metres (12,000 sq ft). That’s six times the size of the exhibition area of the gallery’s main floor on South Granville. The project space is bigger than the main floor of the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Equinox Project Space is being inaugurated with Fred Herzog: A Retrospective. The exhibition will contain all the photographs he’s editioned since 1953 – upwards of 180 works said Andy Sylvester, the gallery’s owner.

“It’s a big space: 12,000 square feet with 25 foot high ceilings,” Sylvester said. “I’m quite proud of it.”

Sylvester said the new exhibition space coincides with the gallery’s 40th anniversary. To mark the occasion, he decided to do something different from a retrospective of the gallery’s art and artists during the past four decades.

Calling all coffee-house, art-loving types:




A decent timelapse video too.

Damn pot heads causing a traffic congestion. Good thing none of them had to work today, as it's only Monday.

It's actually quite interesting to visit St. Paul's hospital on this day. We needed to go there last year for something completely else and it was full of people on bad trips from this event. It is quite interesting and gives one some perspective.

Bad trips from weed? Of all places I'd imagine Vancouverites could handle their pot.

I am pretty sure there is more than weed involved with those cases, but yeah, this day is very busy for the hospital. The nurse was actually delighted to see also some other patients than just people from 420. There were lots of people drooling and shaking like crazy in the waiting room.

Taking the side streets to get around the crowd can also be quite interesting. Ponds of puke everywhere.

It's very easy to accidentally consume too much if it's in edible form.

Pathetic: celebrate your drug dependency day. Maybe next year we can have Crackhead Day or Heroin Injection Day.

Yeah because its totally the same thing. I know how about a day where everyone drinks booze (oh wait thats every day).....People are entitled to their opinions and all that jazz, but there are some pretty funny ones in this thread....In my opinion. Just so we're clear other then some time in highschool I dont smoke, and would have no interest in attending this event. However I would in no way equate this event to a crackhead day or heroin day because that is just straight up stupidity. I mean I suppose if you are a bluehaired 65 to 100 year old person all set in their ways, shaking their fist at whippersnappers, maybe I coulkd see having that opinion, because you are just too old and too set in your ways to know how silly your beliefs are......

Bullshit, do the research. I have an extended family member whose schizophrenia was triggered by pot use. There's a whole legion of potheads out there trying to downplay the risks:

I think pot should be legalized along with most other street drugs but that 4/20 crowd is pretty terrible. I'd be embarrassed by them if I really cared about the cause.

Doesn't pot kill brain cells? Why does everything have to be 'dumbed down' in this city?

Infrequent Poster: I appreciate what you're trying to do, but it's not worth it, don't feed the troll. Also, you can ignore certain users in your control panel.

VCH released info that they treated 15 people with various symptoms yesterday. That number came out really early though. I'm sure it went higher.

My problem is the lack of organization and accountability. If any other group wanted this kind of event they'd have to go through official city channels, get a permit, pay for police and BCAS support, etc.

Let's wrap up the pro/anti weed discussion or start another thread dedicated to it in the general discussions section.

Not sure where to put this, but the Parks Board is considering a zip line in Queen Elizabeth Park this summer to celebrate its 75th anniversary. Cool idea.
