“Winnipeg’s Exchange District was once full of artist’s studios, it is still home to many. The first inspiration for Glitterpeg was the energy that occupies and surrounds these buildings. Glitter is not the bricks and mortar but life and its detritus. The application of glitter connotes something precious, magical and new. Glitter as the cheapest version of jewels and gold leaf has an implicitly tarnished reputation — (g)litter.” — Andrew Beck, 2021
