“In the postmodern world it seems, one man’s art can be another man’s property.So it was that a member of the Vancouver Police Department strode into the ultra-cool Contemporary Art Gallery on a lovely, sunlit afternoon one day last week to inform the gallery that [a local businessman] wanted his signs back. The gallery was caught red-handed. The signs were right there, bold as brass, in the gallery’s big front windows… The gallery quickly agreed to return Mr. Grandy’s signs, but not without considerable bemusement and wonder at it all.”
