The Words Don’t Fit The Picture installation removed from VPL Downtown

This piece could be seen prominently from Robson Street and it was installed just before the 2010 Olympics. We’re noting this for the record, as there seem to have been little or no discussion about taking the piece down. Here’s the tweet from the City:
