Sedin Proposal

Melanie Coles painted this message up the street from my apartment. For all those who don’t follow hockey, the Sedins are twin brothers who play for our hockey team, the Vancouver Canucks. This work was created for “Total Devotion” which opened at Little Mountain Gallery last week. Listen to her voicemail messages here.

Portuguese-Italian collective Moradavaga have built a shimmering sunwheel for the annual Festa de São João do Porto (Festival of St John of Porto) in Portugal.
