This lemonade stand first appeared at the Gramercy Hotel in New York City as part of a gathering of galleries and art dealers that has since become the Armory Art Fair. With the aid of the pioneering gallerists Colin de Land and Pat Hearn, Dion sold lemonade and seashells for a few dollars per item from this diminutive wooden display in the early 1990s—an action in playful contrast to the business dealings occurring throughout the art fair.
