ダウンタウンにあり、お昼時には美術館前の通りにベンダーが軒を連ね、多くの人で賑わいます。館内は改装中で一部は閉鎖していましたが、先住民の美術の展示やビデオなどもあり、考えさせられるものでした。 more »It's located downtown, and at lunchtime, there are many vendors on the street in front of the museum. The building was undergoing renovations and some were closed, but there were exhibits and videos of indigenous art, which made it thought-provoking.
I love going to the Vancouver Art Gallery. I didn't feel very well this time but we were able to go to the second floor for one of the Out For Lunch Concerts. Classical music by a very competent quartet. Accessibility is by elevator through the secure area. Staff are helpful. There's always something interesting to buy in the Vancouver Art Gallery Gallery Store and the staff there are very helpful.
Really glad I got to see this Art Gallery while in Vancouver. Although I did find it rather difficult to find specific pieces in the gallery as every security person did not know about them at all and could not answer questions. There were some neat exhibits and artwork! Save room for lunch/dinner, there is a wonderful food truck park directly behind the art gallery. Good downtown location.
