TheWEED (Wellness Energy Earth Dispensary) announced today its collaboration with L.A. based pop artist and LGBTQ+ advocate, Nina Palomba, to bring an artisanal gallery experience to its customers. Palomba’s installation entitled “Love and Light,” will showcase all-original artwork and be on display from June 4th until July 15th.
TheWEED prides itself on offering customers of diverse backgrounds a shopping experience that blends cannabis with culture. In addition to being a high-end dispensary, theWEED is also an art gallery showcasing the work of international artists and features street art, graffiti and pop art. Some of the artists regularly displayed include Shepard Fairey, Alec Monopoly, SX Doom and King Saladeen. TheWEED’s art collection is part of what draws people from all over California to the shop.
“We’re always looking for opportunities to support the arts community and take great pride in the fact that our customers don’t feel rushed to get in and out,” says Stewart Stinson, General Manager and Owner of theWEED. “We’re honored to have Nina’s work at the shop, just in time for one of LA’s most lively weekends!”
Renowned for her playful illustrated narratives and uplifting murals, Palomba’s work has taken her across the globe leaving her mark all over the world. As an LGBTQ+ advocate, Palomba devotes her time to supporting the community by painting uplifting murals across the country. She travels teaching workshops to students about being a queer artist in today’s world while spreading positivity through art, encouraging others to “Shine On!” Palomba plans to illustrate notions of whimsical love stories through noir revival in her painted installation. “Overlapping LA Pride, visitors can expect nothing less than artwork that brings a smile to your face, fills your heart with romance and leaves a mark on your day in the best way!” says Palomba.
