Flying pigs, leaping unicorns, and a mysterious Mona Lisa all made out of candy are what’s in store when Candytopia pops up in San Francisco this fall. The roving exhibit, made with Instagram in mind, lands at 767 Market Street near Union Square on September 6.
The brainchild of Jackie Sorkin, star of TLC’s Candy Queen, Candytopia first popped up in Santa Monica earlier this year. It drew the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Drew Barrymore, and Christina Aguilera, who all posted photos of themselves with Candytopia’s colorful installations — because that is what one does at a place like Candytopia. Wiz Khalifa posed in the giant marshmallow pit, which is, thankfully, not made of real marshmallows, so the stickiness factor is less of a concern (but, let’s be honest, still something of a concern).
The exhibit stretches out over 12 rooms and, while it would be in bad form to eat the art, there are gummies, chocolates, and other pieces of candy handed out throughout.
Tickets go on sale August 1 at noon, priced at $34 for adults and $26 for kids 4 to 12. Kids 3 and under are free.
