If you enjoyed seeing Vancouver’s swinging hippie past in the Hippies Overrun Vancouver, 1967 video clip, then you’ll love the amazing online archive and art exhibition Vancouver Art in the Sixties: Ruins in Process.

Co-sponsored by Vancouver’s Belkin Art Gallery and grunt gallery, this huge, online, multi-media collection presents “still and moving images, ephemera, essays and interviews [that] explore the diverse artistic practices of Vancouver art in the 1960s and early 1970s.”

Check out the site if you love art and history, or remember Vancouver in the sixties (or wish you could).
