VANCOUVER WOULD BE COOLER IF #198: Its Dog Sculpture Peed An Artistic Torrent

You know the 7ft. tall porcelain “Main Street Poodle” sculpture at Main & 17th that recently caused a NIMBY uproar because it cost $100,000 and “just doesn’t fit” with the neighbourhood? Pfft, that’s nothing. Check this puppy out. The massive installation by LA-based artist Richard Jackson sees a gigantic dog peeing yellow paint all over the side of the Orange County Museum of Art (…because art). Where do you think it would it show best in Vancouver? In other words, what should it pee on?

Update: the correct answer is real estate marketers.
