Paradise called this past weekend as I attended Photo Pop Philly— Philly’s first interactive art exhibit. Now back for its second installation, Photo Pop Philly features the work of a slew of amazing local artists. This one-of-a-kind exhibit (curated by Philly Pr Girl) is comprised of all of the things that Instagram dreams are made of– larger than life props, flower walls, and colorful backdrops– all tying into this year’s theme #sweetparadise.
How it works
Tickets are timed and can be purchased in advance online through Photo Pop’s website. The great thing about timed tickets is that it ensures that guests can enjoy everything that the exhibit has to offer without waiting in long lines or bumping into one another in passing.
This exhibit is great for everyone, groups and children included however, don’t be shy if you’re flying solo. The staff is very accommodating, readily available to snap your picture and give great tips for really making your photos come alive! The Sweet Paradise Exhibit at Photo Pop Philly will be on display until August 24th. Philly-natives and tourists alike will especially enjoy the Philly-themed art on display as well.
Due to the increasing desire to have the perfectly curated Instagram feed, these pop-up exhibits have become more and more popular over the past few years. Here are a few similar exhibits:
1. Museum of Ice Cream– San Fransisco
2. The Color Factory– New York City
3. 29 Rooms by Refinery29– multiple cities
