The May Can Wall at Pinewood is Out of this World

The May Can Wall at Pinewood is Out of this World

One of the coolest features at Pinewood (among the many, if I do say so myself) is the can wall along the bowling lanes. It’s the brainchild of artistic genius Bryce McCloud at Isle of Printing, and is comprised of about 2,000 four-inch cans each wrapped with one of four different labels. 

Strategic Hospitality gives Isle of Printing free rein on the can wall, so some months the image is as simple as a swimmer enjoying the summer heat, and some months it is as profound as a solid black wall to protest the senselessness of gun violence and the innocent lives lost for no good reason.

This month the can wall is called Aliens Welcome, and the image of a UFO symbolizes Isle of Printing’s “All are Welcome” policy here on Earth!

Until we meet beings from Outer Space, we are all here together so we should celebrate the unfamiliar, be a little adventurous, and maybe even try to communicate with someone or something we don’t really understand. I mean, what’s the worst that can actually happen??

The UFO is also a nod to the late Art Bell, who recently passed away at the age of 72. Art Bell was known for his late night radio broadcasts that introduced outrageous ideas and far out theories on aliens, abductions, and all things, “seen at the edge of vision.” Art’s broadcasts were the lifeblood for many artists who work better at 2 am than 2 pm and he will be dearly remembered by many.

Can’t wait to see what Bryce comes up with for next month!
