Our Mission

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.
