Here’s a cool art installation at the Western Front Society on 303 East 8th Avenue (near Main Street) in Vancouver.  Here’s a song that most of us know – Love Will Tear Us Apart – but in a language few would ever think it could be sung in – American Sign Language. 

The installation is on until June 27, 2009.  It comprises of three screens of silent beauty and art.  Follow the links for more details.
