Want to collaborate on a project? We’d love to talk about how POPP=D  ART can work with you to bring your vision to life. Every activation is unique, so costs and fees will vary. Drop us a line and let’s chat! For booking and information, email us at hello@poppedart.gallery.


A small gallery space with a campy style, POPP=D ART brings a vibrant dose of creative nostalgia along for the ride. Our repurposed 1963 Rainbow caravan is a tiny venue – at times a project space, a gallery, a shop, or a gathering space – at other times, all of these..

POPP=D ART is a mobile roving art piece that brings one-of-a-kind art experiences to the people. We like to say “It doesn’t have to be in a museum to be art”. This creative, collaborative, ever-changing space challenges the notions of what and where art can be and who art is for.


In 2013, we activated a vacant storefront on an urban strip in Cincinnati called Short Vine by opening a pop up gallery with the intention of engaging the community and breathing new life into the neighborhood. Our funky, non-stuffy art gallery grew a following, but needed to move on when the building was due to be renovated. Wanting to keep the momentum, our team took the gallery mobile with the support of a grant from People’s Liberty 2015.


Our mission is to increase community interaction using the power of art within public spaces in a unique and vibrant way.
