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

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.
