About our Art & Design Pop-Up Partners:
Fallen Fruit began by mapping fruit trees growing on public property in their hometown of Los Angeles. The collaboration has expanded to include public projects and site-specific installations in cities around the world. Using fruit as a method for reframing the familiar, Fallen Fruit investigates urban space, ideas of neighborhood and new forms of citizenship.
First Street Gallery Art Center is an exhibition space, studio and arts management center for adults with developmental disabilities in Claremont, California. It is a unique resource of the Tierra del Sol Foundation, which is founded on the proposition that human potential for creativity and artistic expression is not limited by physical or intellectual challenges. First Street will be offering “Live Portrait Drawing” by Victor Frias, master draftsman, as well as other gallery artists’ work.
Located in Old Pasadena, Flower Pepper Gallery exhibits local and international artists. Their program includes exhibition and events, as well as making artist prints, home collectibles and books accessible to the public. Always a good neighbor, Flower Pepper Gallery has partnered with students and alumni from Art Center, and was part of Old Pasadena’s recent district-wide art intervention, Bold Pas. Featured artists at Art & Design will include: Amy Van Gilder, Valerie Pobjoy, Liten Kanin, Yetis & Friends, Po Yan Leung as well as others from Flower Pepper Gallery’s roster.
Founded in in 1894 by Adam Clark Vroman, Vroman’s Bookstore holds an important place in Southern California’s literary history. For many years, Vroman’s was the largest bookstore west of the Mississippi, and remains the oldest and largest independent bookstore in So Cal. Throughout its storied legacy, Vroman’s has continued to be an independently owned family business. In 2009, Vroman’s added WeHo’s beloved Book Soup to its familial fellowship when it acquired the store after it was in danger of closing. In 2017, One Colorado partnered with Vroman’s for its seasonal Book Club.
Twigzz will host its Flower Market in the courtyard at this year’s Art and Design Open Market. With its quaint One Colorado shop located in Smith Alley, Twigzz is a floral and botanical shop and creative design studio. A small, family-operated business, Twigzz has been serving the Pasadena community since 2014, with an emphasis on special occasions, weddings and just because.
