In June 2016, Ninety Bears collaborated with Found Festival to create a semi-interactive garden themed art installation for their beer garden at Gazebo Park in Old Strathcona.

As part of this project we created large paper mache vegetables (carrots, tomatoes, asparagus, eggplant and squash). We had help from Ryan Williams to create wooden signs throughout the space as well as a large photo board where visitors could take photos of themselves as a carrot and tomato. We also had help from Shannon Thomas for the sign lettering.

We also created a fun table game of tic tac toe with a playing board and coasters that were designed by Alex Descotes and screen printed by Amanda Mackenzie at SNAP Gallery. The coasters were double-sided, with one side being a slice of a carrot and the other side a slice of tomato, allowing teams for tic tac toe. Blush Lane sponsored us for this piece so we featured their logo on one side and the Ninety Bears logo on the other.

Below are some photos from our whimsical beer garden!
