Ask any artist and they will all tell you that they are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to showcase their passion and work, and of course encourage others to get involved with the world of art. Renowned artist Jackson Pollock will have such an opportunity this summer, while his work is on display at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) as his art the Expressionist New York: Masterpieces from the Museum of Modern Art exhibition comes to the AGO. New York Fries is partnering with AGO on a new campaign called “Be Bold and Express Yourself” and subsequent offer, with the purchase of a New Yorker Combo, (one extra large fries, two hot dogs and two regular soft drinks for $12.79), New York Fries customers will receive one free youth admission to the AGO (valued at $16.75) with the purchase of an adult admission to Abstract Expressionist New York. They have also launched a contest for children to win win a grand prize of a free class trip to the AGO.
“As a brand that originated in New York City, we are thrilled to partner with the AGO to promote New York City’s most renown artistic movement,” says Jay Gould, President and Founder, New York Fries. “It’s a great fit with our brand. Abstract Expressionist New York is a bold exhibit with lots of energy and attitude in it – and we can relate to that! I’m sure our customers will love access to this one-of-a-kind show.”
This is a innovative way for the AGO to partner with New York Fries to celebrate this exhibition, the creativity of our youth and the culture of New York City. “Together we will encourage the budding artists of Ontario to be as bold and expressive as the artists in the exhibition and to have a great time this summer at New York Fries and the AGO, ” says Bev Carret, Manager of Government and Community Relations, Art Gallery of Ontario.
