This summer, La Sirena will be setting up shop at Chelsea Market for a pop-up marketplace featuring museum-quality Mexican Folk art. La Sirena “The Mermaid,” is known for their unique, traditional merchandise and whimsical, collectable folk art from many regions of Mexico. According to owner and creator Dina Leor, La Sirena can be described as “a museum where you can buy things.”
Everything you’ll find at La Sirena is uniquely handmade by another human being. Much of the work on display is crafted by families whose traditions have been handed down from generation to generation. Featured items for purchase include Talavera pottery; Magical Alebrijes (hand-carved and painted wooden animals) from Oaxaca, Mexico; traditional embroidered clothing from Chiapas, Oaxaca, Puebla and Tlaxcala; hand-woven baskets; unique t-shirts; and many more.
Additionally, La Sirena plans on hosting cultural events with folkloric dance, traditional music, art demonstrations, and food made by families in the community. Programming to be announced later in the summer.
