Unlimited Growth Increases The Divide | Art | One of the most poignant pieces of public art in Vancouver is a sign above the Del Mar Hotel on Hamilton Street (off Dunsmuir) that reads Unlimited Growth Increases the Divide. The piece by artist Kathryn Walter was commissioned by hotel owner George Riste. It stands as a testament to Riste’s commitment to housing the poor and of his resistance to sell-out to BC Hydro.
