Interactive Pop-Up Exhibit Of Local Philly Artists To Debut Memorial Day Weekend

Photo Pop Philly brings five rooms of Instagrammable art to Center City...

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 for six weeks this summer.

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 Sunday, July 8 from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. with timed tickets for entry available from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m.

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. Exhibit entry is free for children 5 and younger.
