What is The Pop-Up,  A Valparaiso Art Experience?

The Pop-Up: A Valparaiso Art Experience, is a regional art competition brought to you by Valparaiso Events.

During this art exhibition, Valparaiso will become an artistic playground where anyone can find a form of art that inspires or spurs conversations about what art is and why it matters. Each day the community will be engaged with displays of both the visual and performing arts. Artwork from around the region will “pop-up” in neighborhood businesses for all to enjoy.  There is sure to be dynamic events available for all ages. Each Venue is a voting station allowing you to help select the winner of the People’s Choice Award!

Its creative and diverse schedule will keep visitors anticipating what’s NEXT! It’s highly interactive and undeniably intriguing to the public.

The Pop-Up will return for its 3rd year in 2018 on June 21 and continue through July 6!

Help us celebrate the Arts in Valparaiso. We hope you will join us in FORGING A CREATIVE COMMUNITY!
