Art! Beer! Hockey! Now that I have your attention…

How does an Art installation come to be posted on the Canadian Beer News website? Amazing. Enter “The King and I”, a collaboration between Halifax based artist and curator Eleanor King; and Toronto based Stefan Hancherow.  Opening on February 4th, Hockey Bar will transform the Confederation Centre for the Arts’ Entrance Gallery in Prince Edward Island “into a welcoming social space that features both hockey and beer related artworks alongside [Prince Edward] Island hockey memorabilia.”

The King and I - Eleanor King and Stefan Hancherow

Imagine your favorite sports bar housing  Graeme Patterson’s Ten Point Game, a table-hockey based sculpture featuring an animation narrated by Darryl Sittler; Ali Nickerson’s altered bar stool, Colleen; and, Andy Warhol’s Wayne Gretzky 99. And what would the ambiance be without an assortment of beer kegs, bottles and labels?

This dynamic duo is definitely onto something, and it has the art community and sports fans alike talking and, well, drinking beer.
