An arts-lover's guide to Vancouver's cultural delights

Along with the Cultural Olympiad, running until March 21, there is plenty to do in Vancouver during the Olympics — and beyond.

The 2010 Olympics may still be three weeks away (Feb. 12-28). But the 2010 Cultural Olympiad, an arts festival happening all over Vancouver, B.C., kicked off last Friday. And it runs until March 21.

It features literally scores of live theater, music and dance events, including shows at the newly built Fei and Milton Wong Experimental Theatre in Gastown. > But the Cultural Olympiad is not the only center of arts activity in town. Local art galleries have some impressive exhibits lined up, with a few of them Olympics-related. And business continues as usual at music, comedy and theater venues where you can wind down and warm up after wintry outdoor activity.
