Submitted by SamanthaHarris on Thu, 01/12/2017 - 2:30pm

Local artist Stephanie Kantor will put a spin on the classic tourism kiosk at her latest quirky installment. She’ll use her pop-up’s presence to educate visitors on the “gift shop”, a common aspect of how we experience cultural landmarks and tourist destinations. When she is inside, Kantor will sell handmade knick-knacks, including cups, vases and 16th street mall souvenirs. Haggle for meticulously crafted treasures such as hand painted diamond-back rattlesnake wallpaper, a pattern that mimics the inlay of the Mall.
