An Outdoor Multimedia Visual Arts Market. Local Artists, Workshops, Live music and more! In Napier Greenway (Napier St @ Commercial Drive)

We've always known that La Grotta del Formaggio is the best cheese shop in the city. Well, it appears that news has reached the realm of our animated friends. Spotted last night on the wall under their front window was Mickey with a wedge of Swiss in his hand — or is that Emmental? or perhaps Gruyére? Hmmm… you'll just have to take a look to be sure!

A 1,000-pound public art installation, paid for by the Commercial Drive Business Society, was installed in Grandview Park last week with assistance from the Vancouver Park Board.

This multi-venue art show on Commercial Drive featured 200 pieces of original art – all by individuals living with mental health disabilities. Many are celebrated artists in the community and have exhibited at events such as the Eastside Culture Crawl.

An independent panel of judges reviewed submissions for design ideas for new manhole covers, the lids that mark the entrances to our underground network of sewers. The Public Art Program received more than 640 entries from Vancouverites of all walks of life and ages and short-listed their top-30 choices. From this short-list, the two winning designs were chosen.
