VAG On The Move?

See Frances Bula's blog and article in the Globe & Mail today for an update on the Vancouver Art Gallery's potential move.

According to director Kathleen Bartels, the gallery has deemed the potential False Creek location unworkable and has set its sights on the old bus depot location on Georgia beside the recently refurbished Queen Elizabeth Theatre.

This block is certainly more appealing than False Creek, for many reasons, but the nagging question must be asked again: is a move necessary? It seems there are a number of options for expansion that might solve the VAG's understandable need for more space.

This comes hot on the heels of Lisa Rochon's recent support to keep the gallery in its present location.
