Death by Pop-Up Shop closing party tonight




Saturday, Dec. 29 – Death by (Blank): A Farewell Celebration

4 p.m.-midnight

Death by Pop-up Shop

1844 E. Winter Park Road




Well, it was fun while it lasted. The retail space next to Stardust at 1844 E. Winter Park Road has been an object lesson in the cycle of life, death and rebirth: First it was art objet shop/gallery Bold Hype; when that closed, Death by Pop (eventually) rose out of the ashes to purvey graffiti-flavored sneakers and T-shirts; when they departed, the B-Side Artists collective slipped in and took over the space for a three-month pop-up store/art workshop/hangout zone that saw Chris Tobar Rodriguez, Swamburger, Skip and the rest of the crew making, displaying and teaching in a nonstop frenzy of creativity. Now the party’s over, and with it all of the yoga, photography classes, stencil cutting, T-shirt screening, painting marathons and movie nights will end

until the guys find a new place to perch. This evening of farewell celebration will feature limited edition prints, artwork and clothing by “the best of the best of the best of Orlando artists” at rock-bottom prices – and also wine and cheese. Stop by to say goodbye, and keep in touch with the guys on Facebook for future plans. – Jessica Bryce Young
