Make a museum during Valparaiso’s Better Block Project!
A pop up museum is a temporary exhibit created by the people who show up to participate! It works by choosing a theme and a venue and then inviting people to bring an object on topic to share. Participants write a label for their object and leave it on display. A pop up museum usually lasts a few hours. It can happen anytime, anywhere, and with any community.
The PoCo Muse invites you to help us make a museum about “Trash or Treasure” during Valparaiso’s Better Block Project! We often hear the cliche, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” During the Pop Up Museum, we’ll display artifacts that have surprised us, and invite you to add an object to the display from 4-8p.
During the evening of August 4, Indiana Ave. in downtown Valpo will transform with new infrastructure, art, food trucks, pop-up shops, and more! This event aims to spur imaginations and conversations about how we can develop Indiana Ave. into a Creative Arts District!
