Vancouver’s UBC Museum of Anthropology got robbed this week (Bloomberg.com). Presumably, the jerks who stole Bill Reid’s gold artwork at least know enough not to melt the stuff down, as the gold will lose probably 90 per cent of its value if it’s made into a lump of cold bullion. To the rich, selfish, obsessed collector who ruined the party for everyone by hiring goons to steal the work of one of Canada’s greatest artists: get bent.
In tribute to the people who work at the museum and the spirit of Bill Reid, I’ve posted the latest Currents video of my own tour of the UBC Museum of Anthropology. No voice-over this time, but please enjoy the scenery.
