Two years ago Jill Emmer of Shine On Photos started a project on her Instagram (@Shineonyoucraydiamond) by mailing her beloved photography prop - a rainbow umbrella - to a fellow photographer friend. Soon after, more and more people requested the umbrella.Two years later the umbrella has visited a multitude of countries and cities such as Malaysia, Australia, London, Rome, Ireland, New York, LA, Philly, Chicago and more. It has also been written about in the Huffington Post, BuddyTruk and Midwest Living Magazine. 

This show is titled "The Umbrella That Traveled The World" and includes:
* A sampling of Jill Emmer's umbrella photos
* A wall featuring over 20 traveling umbrella photos taken by photographers from all over the world.
* 4 Large anchor pieces specifically created for this show by:
Drew Beson

The gallery will be located in the center of the mall (on a facade built in front of the new Free People store) and will be installed at the beginning of May. It will be displayed for three months.
