Philadelphia, get ready to gram.

This Memorial Day weekend, Photo Pop Philly launches to showcase local artists in a five-room pop-up exhibition that runs through Labor Day (Monday, September 3).

The temporary exhibition makes excellent use of an otherwise-vacant Center City space to feature highly Instagrammable red-white-and-blue-themed rooms (including a former bank vault!) created just for Photo Pop Philly by Philadelphia artists.

Presented by VISIT PHILADELPHIA and curated by Philly PR Girl, the exhibit features a diverse selection of local artists including Amberella — whose graphic hearts can be spotted around town and in the Instagram below — Alloyius Mcilwaine, Aye!CRTV, Get Up, Kara Khan’s Pop Up Polaroid, Nero, Martha Rich, Michael Lambui and These Pink Lips.

Housed in the historic Philadelphia Building at Walnut and Juniper streets, a Goldman Properties Company building, Photo Pop Philly comes in a long line of art projects and community initiatives that Goldman — the group behind The Wynwood Walls and much of the development along 13th Street in the Gayborhood — has supported and powered.

Kicking off on Thursday, May 24, the exhibition will be open Tuesdays through Sundays (closed Mondays) through Monday, September 3 from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. with timed tickets for entry available from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. The space will remain available special events for larger groups for two weeks after it closes on Labor Day.

Tickets to Photo Pop Philly are available online and run $25 for general admission with discounts available for military (10% off with ID) and groups of 10 or more until Sunday, July 1. From July 1 through September 3, general admission is $20. Exhibit entry is free for children 5 and younger.
