Valentine’s memories: 2008

Hearts at the Art Gallery

Here’s a happy memory from the VPSN archives: our 2008 Valentine’s intervention on the south steps of the Art Gallery. A crew from the public space network rolled up their sleeves on the evening of February 13/14 and stamped hundreds of red, white and pink hearts onto the steps facing Robson Street. We hadn’t even finished before people were crowding around with their friends and loved ones — posing and taking pictures and helping with the endeavour.

Hard to believe that was five years ago!

Oh, and yes… it was washable paint! All gone by the time February 15 rolled around.
