Art shows up in unusual places with creative grocery dividers
Grocery shopping in Port Moody just got a little more artistic. Watch out for Art Bars on the conveyor belts at Thrifty Foods. Twenty artists have let their imaginations run wild, transforming the ever-practical grocery divider into striking pieces of art.
“Our Arts and Culture Committee challenged themselves to put art in unusual places, and this is a great example of their ingenuity” says Mayor Mike Clay. “You don’t imagine that you would see or pick up original works of art while paying for your milk. It’s very unexpected, and fitting for the City of the Arts.”
Several businesses generously contributed to the project, including Port Coquitlam’s Tri-City Paint and Decorating, Port Moody’s AAA Aluminum, Port Moody’s Craftsman Collision and the Suter Brook Thrifty Foods.
Look for the unique pieces created by these 20 artists the next time you’re at Thrifty Foods.
