Sign of art


This "faux" hotel sign is actually considered a piece of art. You'll find it inside the Drake Hotel on Queen Street West. Do you get the joke?

Who's Sue. Susan Anton? A boy named Sue? I dunno. Cute sign, though.

Still on a break, except for occasional excursions back into the world of blogging.

Re your comment on The Villages...I have no idea who the group was. Lois volunteered to take their picture for them and I caught this shot from the top deck.

Hope you're doing well!

I don't hve the slightest idea. If it has something to do with Desparately Seeking Susan, that is so long ago that I can't remember.

Bob Crowe said...

I...think...so. How do the customers react to this?

Randy said...

Looks like some old signs I used to see as a kid.

Luna Miranda said...

Sue is not coming back until a full-time housekeeper and chef are hired.:p

Francisca said...

Would that be Jim desperately seeking Sue? :-)

This sign got a lot of funny responses. Although it looks like an old motel sign, it's actually a "work of art" that is displayed inside the Drake Hotel. It's by Ken Lum and you can learn more about it here: http://www.thedrakehotel.ca/culture/permanent-collection/.

Art of rattling the mind into spinning a story! An intriguing sign!

Lesley said...

it does inspire conversation! maybe the message under the sign changes every month or so?

Dianne said...

I want to know what Jim did to make Sue leave :)

Lindy MacDuff said...

Maybe Sue thought the the rooms were a little too comfy for Jim, you suppose?

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
