Have we got Mr Audain's phone number? 

This collection should be on the Island. Nanaimo strikes me as an excellent place for it. Audain and his wife also own some of the very finest EJ Hughes paintings. Let's invite hime over to see the mural… Seriously, this world-calss collection would be a game changer for this little city that so desperately wants to confidently take its place in the wider world. If you don't know the details of the Audain Foundation please research. This should be pursued vigorously and quickly. Give him a call, invite him over...
