It’s better in Valparaiso

Introducing The Pop Up: A Valparaiso Art Experience


Art and culture come to life this July! Valparaiso Events and The Enclave Project present to you a brand new experience that celebrates one of the fastest growing communities in our city. It is with this that we are proud to present to you The Pop-Up: A Valparaiso Art Experience.

Coming your way July 7-17, The Pop-Up will transform Valpo into an artistic playground, with different pieces and exhibits “popping up” all across town and in neighborhood businesses. From both the visual and performing arts, anyone can find something that inspires and spurs conversation on what is art and why it matters. Whether you’re someone immersed in the culture or you’re a newcomer; an adult or a child, there are events for everyone throughout The Pop-Up’s 11-day span.

The Pop-Up is more than just an art showcase. It’s also one of the biggest competitions in the area. Regional artists can submit their best work to be featured all over Valpo, and best of all, you’ll help decide the winner! Voting stations will be set up at select venues, as well as online. The winners will receive:

  • 1st place: $2500
  • 2nd place: $1000
  • 3rd place: $500

What can you expect to see? That’s the best part. You’ll never have the same experience twice! The Pop-Up’s creative and diverse schedule will keep any visitors guessing what will come next. Exhibits will be highly interactive and undeniably intriguing to the public. Be sure to pay attention to the schedule of events to keep track of everything that’s going on and where you can find more art-related happenings around town.

The Pop-Up comes your way July 7-17 all over Valparaiso. We hope you will join us in forging a creative community!
