Pop Up Art logoPop Up Art is designed to spark new interest in all mediums of the visual and performing arts while creating a dialogue around the value of the arts in daily life as cited in the Arts & Culture Master Plan. Temporary public art projects often have a predetermined life span, ranging from just mere hours to a few months to several years throughout Carlsbad. Cultural Arts offers these experiences to celebrate the array of talented local, regional and national artists. As free arts experiences for all ages, there are currently three components to the program:

  • Pop Up Art: An Interactive Encounter
  • Pop Up Art: Showcasing Local Talent (featured at Carlsbad Libraries)
  • Pop Up Art: A New Experience (in collaboration with the Carlsbad Village Association)

A hands-on arts experience for the whole family 

It’s time to pop into the Cannon Art Gallery for a fun photography exhibit from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame: Images of an Era.  You’ll see some amazing photos of famous musicians playing their beloved guitars! What would your own personal guitar look like?  Come and design a guitar on paper with the colors, images, patterns and words that make your guitar unique to YOU!

These interactive arts experiences are presented by the City of Carlsbad’s Cultural Arts Office and are sponsored by the Carlsbad Friends of the Arts.
