Now this is, um, cool
Toronto Hydro is sponsoring Straight from the Fridge, an exhibit of old fridge doors that have been transformed by young Canadian artists, on show at the Junction Arts Festival, tomorrow and Sunday. This stuff looks like a ton of fun, but it’s also Art with a Message, in that old fridges typically add up to $180 in electricity costs a year (compared to a newer Energy Star model). And get this – about one quarter of Torontonians have a second fridge. Folks, that's just silly - isn't it? For customers who want to put their clunker out to pasture, Toronto Hydro has a free Fridge Pick-Up recycling program (call 1-877-797-9473). But if you prefer to get out the paint, glitter and glue gun to turn the old beast into a beautiful objet, check out this installation for inspiration.
