Visual Arts Ontario (VAO) celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2005.

    I was asked to serve as the Technical Advisor for the Triple X Art Exhibition for both the smaller exhibit at the Office of the Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario - Queen's Park, Toronto, and for the complete show in the Queen Street West Gallery District, Toronto. Working with the staff of the VAO and Ed Phillips, the curator of the Toronto installations, we developed layouts in a CAD format for all eight locations along Queen Street West. Given there were only three days for installation in the Gallery district, all art locations and signage had to be finalized before any artwork could be moved. Only minor adjustments for on-site conditions could be accommodated with such a tight schedule. After three months of intense planning, the art work was installed in 2-1/2 days using professional installers, leaving a full day for the VAO staff to polish the presentation.
