Pop-up shops come to Norfolk

Pop-up shops and art galleries will transform Granby Street north of Brambleton Avenue this weekend. A group of artists and young professionals want to use the space at 806 Granby St., previously Quality Furniture Co., for art studios called Alchemy NFK. They’ll display art and host skateboard demonstrations during the Better Block Project this weekend, when the public is invited to see what this block on Granby might look like if it were an arts district. The display room could become rentable studio space for artists, possibly with a café. The back is to be used for band practice studios, an audio/video production studio, screen print shop and eventually a recording studio. (Source)
