May Your Fortunes All Be Free

Though it's been around for a couple of months, I thought some of the out of towners might enjoy knowing about Ms. Teriosa has been operating her free fortune shop down the street for a while. You'll always see a number of folks hanging out front to read her words or wisdom or scribbling their own questions.Triple Base Gallery has this to say about it:
Kelly Ording & Jetro Martinez
“Ms. Teriosa”
3135 24th Street

The artist duo has transformed a vacant storefront into a free fortune-telling business. Cards left outside the storefront instruct passersby to ask “Ms. Teriosa” a question about their future and deposit the card inside a mailbox slot. One week later, the questions will be answered and displayed in the window. The installation includes a bright, bold, carnivalesque mural on the facade and hand-painted elements on the storefront windows.

As a public service to our readers, we wanted to offer to drop off any questions you might have for Ms. Teriosa. It's free, afterall, and it might be the perfect way to start of the new year.

Susan - This is one of those acts of senseless beauty, isn't it?

This is absolutely one of the coolest things that I have ever seen. Wish I could see it in person; thanks for bringing it to me!

Erin - I agree. Maybe there will be a spontaneous movement to set them up everywhere, including Central Ohio!
