Popps Emporium is a house with attached storefront across the street from Popps Packing. Once completed in the fall of 2016, the Emporium will house a community gallery, a tool lending library and will serve as a community resource hub for the sharing of goods, skills, and experiences. The emporium will also be the home of our new Momm and Popps Residency to provide new opportunities to parent artists. Resident artists will use the storefront of the Emporium as their own “Mom and Pop shop”, curating exhibitions, creating installations or other forms of public engagement to add to the Emporiums’ public presence. Popps Emporium will facilitate the sharing of space, time, resources and skills while offering a platform for community engagement, creating new connections and neighborly good will.
This project is made possible in part through the generous support of The Peck Foundation, The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and The National Endowment for the Arts.
