We all know that NorthPark Center is an art museum as well as a shopping destination, and now the center’s new Pop Up Project gives us more reason to bring the kids to appreciate local artists.

The Pop Up Project uses barricaded storefronts as a canvas to showcase the work of local emerging talents, according to NorthPark art programming manager Taylor Zakarin.

Look for Carolyn Ridsdale’s collage, “The Art of Shopping,” across from Kona Grill.   It portrays neighbors with NorthPark experiences, including art, toy trains, performers and flora. Ridsdale is an award-winning illustrator who is represented in Dallas by RR&Co.

Zeke Williams created a quilt-like mural of multi-colored patterns and splotches called “Athor / Laurentia.” You can find it near “Five Hammering Men” between Saint Laurent and Tory Burch. Williams creates digital works using the gaming app “Noby Noby Boy” and Adobe Illustrator.

The third work is Leah Flook’s, “Space Gaze.” It faces Northwest Highway on the mall’s exterior wall between Saint Laurent and Tory Burch. Zakarin says the work of art looks like an illustration of a classical conservatory with a glass roof, except it is colored in three shades of pink.
