PODS®, a leader in the Moving and Storage industry, has become an expert not only at moving consumers and businesses across the country, but also providing convenient storage on-site or in our secure Storage Centers. Recently, several artists across the country have begun using the red and white PODS® containers for cutting edge contemporary art installations.
The 4th annual, “Contain It,” a multimedia installation festival is taking place at the Dunedin Fine Art Center (DFAC). The festival is a magic display of donated PODS® containers, which are used in creative spirit. Ten artists will rework the interior of containers to reflect their unique take on the space.
“We’re thrilled to be able to provide our containers to local artists to be used as a platform to setup their art installations,” said Rob Allison, general manager of Tampa Bay area PODS®. “We’re proud to support these types of events and installations across the country.”
The event runs for one evening and one day March 11th & 12th, 2011. Friday night the 11th promises to be another legendary DFAC party starting at 7:00 pm, with live music provided by the highly regarded D’Visitors! The Dunedin Fine Art Center is located at 1143 Michigan Blvd., Dunedin, FL.
“The idea is to have someone step inside each PODS® container and feel transported into the artist’s imagination,” said Kaya Jill, Associate Curator, Dunedin Fine Art Center."PODS® containers supply great space wherever and for whatever you need. They're great in their traditional moving and storage roll, but as far as we're concerned, they make incredible art installation spaces. The only limit to their use is probably your imagination!"
