To capitalize on the crush of shoppers that will pack NorthPark Center this upcoming holiday season, Nasher Sculpture Center will open a pop-up location of its Nasher Store at the mall starting on October 1.

Much like its counterpart at the museum, the satellite store will feature a wide variety of merchandise, including jewelry, handbags, desktop items, art pieces, home design, children’s products and other pieces designed by world-renowned artists.

Among the items that will be sold are replicas of Thomas Heatherwick’s Spun chairs, which are currently entertaining scores of people at the Nasher; prints, posters and various housewares by graphic artist Brian Cronin; and porcelain by Bernardaud, a historical porcelain company that collaborated with French artists JR and Prune on a series of plates that feature images of the artists’ hands.

Cronin will appear in person at the pop-up shop on Friday, November 7, from 6-9 pm, and Saturday, November 8, from noon-3 pm, for a meet-and-greet and to sign any purchases of his work.

The store, which will be open through February 15, 2015, will be located on level one next to Aveda, across from the Apple Store.
