Wonder Fair (Shop) (Gallery)

Lawrence by Emma Kisiel

Pretty much every weekend, I try to stop in to Wonder Fair. The super friendly folks there specialize in the creation and sale of handmade artist-editioned merchandise and host monthly art openings in the gallery space. There's always something fun and different going on there. If you're a part of my life in some way, I've probably sent you a card bought at Wonder Fair.

Riverfront Park (Park) (Nature)

Lawrence by Emma Kisiel

I think many people have a biased opinion that Kansas is all flat and yellow. Eastern Kansas is actually really lush and green. Riverfront Park sits alongside the Kansas River and the trails cut right through the trees. It's a good spot to be in nature and find critters and animal parts, all important to my work. Plus my dog loves to run around and get in the water.

Lawrence Antique Mall (Shop)

Lawrence by Emma Kisiel

Offbeat antique stores with unique, eclectic collections abound in the rural Midwest, and although I often head to smaller towns off the beaten path to look for antiques, I usually find some good stuff at the Lawrence Antique Mall. I’m always on the lookout for taxidermy…

KU Natural History Museum (Museum)

Lawrence by Emma Kisiel

This is my favorite place in Lawrence. I always enjoy attending the educational events frequently held here. When I first visited, I fell in love with the un-updated look and teal walls with curved archways. When you walk in the front doors, the first thing you see is an incredible panoramic display of mammals. I could stand in front of the panorama forever; I often go there to feel inspired.

Milton’s Café (Cafe)

It recently moved to a space where the ambiance is quite different, but everything on the menu at Milton's is truly delicious. It's definitely been my favorite place to have breakfast and take visitors to since I moved to Lawrence.
