Update: Vancouver Art Gallery “Flamingo” Advertising for “Grand Hotel” Show

A friend who read my previous post in this blog, about the Grand Hotel show at the Vancouver Art Gallery, suggested that those making marketing decisions for the show may have been familiar with the infamous Flamingo Hotel in Whalley (a part of Surrey, just outside of Vancouver), and chose to feature in the show’s advertising the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas partly because they realized many local people were likely to confuse the two hotels, and thought the confusion might boost attendance at the Art Gallery show.

It’s an amusing idea–although probably not true.
