Hopewell

Wearable art is now available at Hopewell and Prince George Breez-In convenience stores. Deposit fifty cents in a gumball machine, turn the handle, open the door, and retrieve mini art created by local artists.

Instead of bubble gum, capsules include an art button/pin with a short artist bio. Some buttons feature downtown Hopewell murals and artwork from “The Hopewell Billboard Project.”

“The goals of the button project are to build community pride, expand the knowledge that art is happening in our area and that the Tri-Cities is home to many talented local artists,” Lamb Center for Arts and Healing [Lamb Arts] Co-Founder and Executive Director Dr. Eliza Lamb said. “With this project, we are expanding the concept of creative care for our community.”
