The First B.C. Art Race

Glenn Lewis and Gerry Gilbert organized this event, a race along Georgia Street with the artists “carrying their art on their backs,” for CBC television’s Up Canada. Tom Shandel unwound one of his films from the end of a hockey stick, HP (Hank Bull and Patrick Ready) unveiled their new Sedan Bottle with Andy Graffiti riding inside; Anna Banana, Dr. Brute and Mr. Peanut of course raced in full regalia. Anna Banana won. Flakey Rose Hip, dressed as Hitler, presented the winner’s prize on the steps of the Vancouver Art Gallery.
