Politico Pop Up
Politico Pop Up is an annual exhibit where political work of any medium is shown to the community. Politico Pop Up was conceived specifically for artists who create political art without an outlet to have their work seen by the public, because of political or social content. The Politico Pop Up art happening includes photography, painting, sculpture, multi media work, printmaking, video, live music, and poetry readings.
On December 9th the New Orleans Arts Center & Gallery (NOACG) hosted the first Politico Pop Up! A one-night art happening for social and political change! Politico Pop Up showcased the work of over 40 artists, with strong political leanings, who are part of New Orleans arts community.
