POPUP Public is a flexible and tolerant playscape--we welcome people of ALL AGES to come and make a place for their hobbies and interests in our space, and to share those passions with others. We believe that these passions, which perhaps exert vastly different energies and trajectories, can co-exist together and even make each other better because of it--and that our space, abstract and sturdy, can hold up to that task.
At the end of the season, POPUP Public will be broken into smaller sets and distributed into to local gyms, community centers, and schools to be used as playgrounds, workout equipment, and leisure space.
