SMMoA's shop GRACIE expands with one-of-kind gifts for the holidays and a bevy of American made recycled, repurposed, and green items inspired by the work of Southern California-based guest artist Shari Elf. Elf's "good and sturdy art" is made from discarded lumber, tin, plastic and other decorative odds and ends. More than 100 of her three-dimensional, handmade pieces, made exclusively for GRACIE, will be available. Elf's highly sought after work will be sold on a first come, first served basis, with prices starting at $45. The shop is open today 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and will be open through December 23.
