Art+Flea expands with MORI
After four years of growth, monthly nomadic urban market Art+Flea has expanded to include a permanent retail/workshop/experimental space at Ward Village’s Ward Warehouse.
Nov. 29, also Small Business Saturday, was grand opening day for the boutique, featuring gifts, apparel, art and other handmade conversation pieces created by local creatives.
Art+Flea co-founder and MORI creator Aly Ishikuni considers the space the next step in the evolution of the unique shopping experience. The space currently highlights the work of Pow Pow, Remi Mead, Topia, Soriya Swim, Yireh, Claymore Minds, Fancy Action, Secret Record Store, Adventure Fun Club, Pixel Papel, Luna Amante, Honhi Hawaii, and Mistprint, along with art installations by Matt Honda, Kamran Samimi, and Chusak Majarone.
Artists and vendors will be rotated in and out to offer more opportunity to Art+Flea members. Ishikuni also envisions it as a social space where people will be able to come together for performances, food events and workshops. Keep up to date at www.artandflea.com
MORI by Art+Flea is in Ward Warehouse, near TheFaceShop. Hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays to Saturdays, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays.
