While there is a ton of coverage on Lolla weekend, a reader sent us some info on a well known Bronzeville artist who setup shop in the Sloop at the southwest corner of Wabash and State:
At the corner of 9th and Wabash, where the Halloween store usually is, there has been some activity in that store front. There are now some arcade games, Pacman and others, and the for rent sign is down. Not sure if Columbia is doing something or if some type of establishment is moving in.
They did some more digging and found out:
More on this...the artist Hebru Brantley will have a pop up art store in the 9th/Wabash location for the festival this weekend.
Here is a video we embeded from youtube of Hebru doing his thang at Art Basel in Miami:
