Artist Keith McKellar’s obsessive romance as a Vancouver nighttime cabbie in the 1970s informed his eccentric and colourful view of people and inspired him to record the old neon signages of vintage Vancouver theatres, cafes, clubs and hotels. This exhibition features McKellar’s rendition of legendary businesses and their landmark roles in the steetscape, including Orpheum Theatre, Railway Club, Save-On Meats, Sun Tower, Ovaltine Café, Smilin’ Buddha, Astoria Hotel, Helen’s Neon Girl and more.
