AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Housed in the 1906 former courthouse, Vancouver’s art museum is a relatively small facility that focuses on contemporary urban art and traveling exhibits. Though it has the largest holding of famed BC artist Emily Carr (a spiritual contemporary of Frida Kahlo and Georgia O’Keeffe), a relatively small number of Carr canvases are on display at most times. Keep your eyes open for canvases by Jack Shadbolt, another notable BC artist whose paintings poise between realism and Expressionism. The south-facing steps of the building are the focal point for the city’s almost daily political and social protests.
