"Grocery Art", The New York Times, August 27, 2002 -- The Arts/Footlight section


How much is that screw-filled crate of "blueberries" in the window? Shoppers at the Gourmet Garage, a specialty grocery in SoHo, may be asking that question as they walk past the store's windows and see a new exhibition of found-object sculptures based on fruit and vegetables in the store's windows. "Art by the Pound," by the Brooklyn-based artist Jeff Sundheim. opens today with wooden corn, asparagus made of black rods and other sculptured inedibles. It runs through Sept. 30 and, as advertised. The work is for sale by weight. Gourmet Garage is at 453 Broome Street, at Mercer Street.
