Pop Ups at Atlanta Contemporary explore art making through fun and simple activities which engage patrons in contemporary art making practices, utilizing different types of materials, and exploring a variety of art making processes. 

These free Pop Ups are designed to enhance visitor experiences in the gallery space and provide a creative outlet to explore and create. Our Pop Ups may correlate with current exhibitions, highlight resident studio artists, or be responsive to community partnerships and events. The goal of our Pop Ups are to provide patrons with an engaging and memorable creative experience.
