3135 24th Street – Kelly Ording & Jetro Martinez
Description: The artists have transformed a vacant storefront into a free fortune-telling business. Cards left outside the storefront instruct passersby to ask “Ms. Teriosa” a question about their future and deposit the card inside a mailbox slot. One week later, the questions are answered and displayed in the window. The installation includes a bright, bold, carnivalesque mural on the facade and hand-painted element on the storefront windows.
