Better Late Than Never

Well over a year after we first noticed the lack of artwork in the Aldi display cases, it has finally made its debut. We are sure the students at Uplift School worked hard on these 3 panels that are now displayed on the Broadway side of Aldi.
There is also a panel that explains how the artwork came to be through a collaboration with 7th grade students from Arai (Uplift) and "Changing Worlds," a nonprofit educational arts program.
There is also more good news. The three northern-most display cases on Broadway are now filled with Aldi advertising. These cases had been sitting empty for a year and a half and had been covered in graffiti. Why they did contain advertising till now is a mystery, but as we said, "better late than never."
