What was it about?

As the third Pop-Up in our series, MPM wanted to keep reaching diverse audiences. Each theme we choose targets a different population within out community, although many overlap in some way. This theme was chosen to help celebrate local growing and making.

How did it go?

It went great! We had wonderful participants that stuck around to share their objects and stories with the public, something that hadn't happened much in the last two. We got a lot of good feedback on the Pop-Up, the exhibits, and met a number of potential future Pop-Up Museum partners.
