Pop Up Studio’s Intimate seeks to initiate the community of Scranton to interact with one another over a shared experience and engage intellectually in a cultural dialogue as we consider what intimacymeans to us as a collective and as an individual in an ever-changing, technologically advancing landscape.

The Hunt


The Hunt 15


The Hunt is a scavenger hunt inspired by the best of Scranton- its people, its history, and its architecture. Explore aspects of the city often overlooked while cruising the streets with your besties. The first clue comes by text, leading you to a series of strategically located experiences, with the final clue taking you to the finish line where you will be rewarded for your efforts. We use texting software to assist you on those tougher clues by providing hints along the way. The Hunt, a free event in its third year, is open to all ages. Non-residents of Scranton might be more challenged. Some working knowledge of the city is recommended, but not required.

The Pop Up Studio’s Mission:

  • To engage the public in unique participatory, spatial, and formal works creating singular sensory experiences based on the qualities of the venue and the milieu of the surrounding neighborhood.

  • To highlight and bring together the opportunities, resources, and people pushing Lackawanna County forward.

  • To create an imaginative space where people can challenge their conceptions of art in playful and experimental ways.

We invite you to get involved in our projects. Our mission needs broad community support. The Pop Up Studio’s goals will be impossible to realize without the participation of community members to help us situate our projects, accumulate materials, assemble ideas, and bring together new groups of people.
