“We will illuminate the Gallery’s Georgia Street façade in blue & yellow in solidarity with the Ukrainian people,” Vancouver Art Gallery said in a tweet.

The colours of the Ukraine flag are overlayed on the “Imagine Peace” part of the Yoko Ono: Growing Freedom exhibition currently showcased at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
