Australian artist Pip & Pop creates an art installation in the windows of the historic Santa Monica Pier carousel building.


The windows of the historic carousel building on the Pier, The Charles Looff Hippodrome, will be all decked out for the holidays. Australian artist Tanya Schultz works as Pip & Pop to create immersive installations and artworks from an eclectic range of materials including sugar, glitter, candy, plastic flowers, everyday craft materials, and found objects. The windows will be unveiled November 27th and be open to the public through January 6th.


The art installation is free and open daily for anyone to view in the windows of the historic Looff Hippodrome. Plan a whole day to the Pier around it and one of the other many events happening here in Santa Monica for the holidays as part of Cheer on the Pier or a visit to the Pacific Park amusement park and go on the 12 family-friendly rides, play one of the many midway games, and enjoy a meal from their over-the-ocean food court. If you visit in the evening in the latter half of December, you can even catch a spectacular holiday-inspired light show on the face of the world-famous Pacific Wheel.
