Foncie's Fotos. NEW: Held over until May 4, 2014!

Thursday, June 6, 2013 to Sunday, May 4, 2014

HELD OVER UNTIL MAY 4, 2014!

Due to popular demand, we have extended Foncie's Fotos until Sunday May 4, 2014!

Foncie Pulice was the last man standing from Vancouver’s great era of post-war street photography. Creator of about 15 million images over his lifetime, Foncie captured Vancouverites in action as they strode the city streets. His photographs trigger vivid memories for long-time residents who recall the particular day, the hour, their companions, the circumstances.

Curator: Joan Seidl, MOV Director of Collections and Exhibitions
Design by: Resolve Design

For Families
Pick up a self-guided tour worksheet when you purchase your admission and your family will have a great time matching shapes, finding the location of old signs, solving word jumbles, and even doing a word search!
