Lucy Sparrow Displays 31,000 Felt Groceries Inside LA Supermarket Installation
‘Sparrow Mart’ is currently on view at the Standard, Downtown LA.
Lucy Sparrow recently launched her Sparrow Mart installation inside the Standard Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The British artist is currently displaying 31,000 handmade felt creations of supermarket goods spanning fresh produce, instant ramen, deli meats, candies, cleaning supplies, and VHS tapes to boot. It’s essentially the artist’s reimagining of a 1980s grocery store. Attendees are also treated to a special menu by The Standard, pairing actual food with their felt-made equivalents.
Tour Sparrow Mart above and let us know if you’ll be paying a visit. The installation will be on view until August 31. Prices range from $5 USD to $73 USD. In other art news, take a look at this week’s best art drops.
