About the artist:

Krista Allenstein finds objects with a past life fascinating. She enjoys giving old items a purpose and an opportunity to exist in a new way. In an effort to find a new use for her collection of vintage maps, she began to use them as the foundation of her paintings of mid-century roadside neon signs, their wording altered to transform the signs into positive and encouraging beacons. Because the designs of the original signs--motel and liquor stores, diners and drive-in theatres--attracted customers during a time when not all customers were welcome, Krista wants to reinvent the purpose of these signs to attract and welcome everyone.  A graduate of the School of Visual Arts (NYC), Krista has enjoyed a warm welcome into the Milwaukee art world. Opportunities include exhibitions at the Lakefront Festival of the Arts, Oconomowoc Arts Festival, Madison Art Fair Off the Square, Frank Juarez Gallery, Gallery 2622, MARN gallery, 2020 Wisconsin Artist Biennial, and 2019-2020 ARTservancy and MARN mentor/mentee appointments. instabio.cc/3032101Dw4D2
