LES Whole Foods Art Gallery!

You may not be able to get that tangy sesame-crusted salmon you crave at the long-awaited Avalon Chrystie Whole Foods (latest opening estimate: someday) for a while. In the meantime, you've got its new impromptu window art gallery on Houston Street. Writes that ANIMAL, Bucky Turco:

What could be taking so long? Maybe the contractors aren't working on their craft, and are instead sharpening their artistic skills. The windows of the Whole Foods have been transformed into mini canvasses that beam with blue collar expressions and seem to draw inspiration from those extra long lunch breaks and lack of finite deadlines. But even Pablo Picasso would have been supportive: "Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.”· Whole Foods' Contractor Art [ANIMAL New York]
